Confident of success, Blur are toying with the fates in naming their new album...

Blur‘s new album – their sixth studio album – due for release within the opening months of 1999 will be called ’13’.

As previously reported in the first single will be ‘Tender’ [url=](Click here for full report) which, like the album, is produced by William Orbit.

The american site Allstar states that the album will be released on March 23 in America, although they incorrectly report that it is Blur‘s fifth album.

Blur and Blur‘s spokesmen were unavailable for comment. Probably because it’s Christmas.
