“A reunion is never not a possibility,”
Damon Albarn has revealed the chances of Blur reuniting to record another album – and it’s good news for fans of the Britpop heroes.
Despite not releasing an album since 2015’s ‘The Magic Whip’, Albarn remains confident that he’ll one day return to the studio with his most famous band.
Speaking to The Sun, Albarn explained how he couldn’t envisage a scenario where the 90s icons don’t join forces once more.
“A reunion is never not a possibility,” he explained.
“I think most definitely at some point we’ll play those songs again. I’d hate to think I’d never play with those musicians again.”
Explaining how a reunion has to happen at the “right time”, he said: “You want to feel that people really, really, really want you to do it, otherwise you’re kind of becoming a tribute act to yourself.
“You destroy everything that you’ve created if you do.
“Some days I really fancy doing a Blur song in the middle of a Gorillaz set. I’ve never tried it, but I probably shouldn’t.”
In the years since Blur’s last studio effort, Albarn has released two Gorillaz albums – including 2017’s ‘Humanz’ which saw him collaborating with Noel Gallagher after the former rivals became friends.
“We don’t talk about our past. We talk about our present”, he said of his friendship with close pal Noel.
“I value my friendship with Noel because he is one of the only people who went through what I did in the Nineties.”
