Blur are to be honoured for their outstanding contribution to music at next year's Brit Awards.

The prize will fuel speculation that the band will reform once more to perform at the event in London's O2 Arena, as the winner usually plays a selection of hits.

The honour – presented on February 12 – comes 21 years after their debut album’s release and 17 years after their only Brit wins.

Frontman Damon Albarn said: “It's great to have recognition for all the work and all the heartache and all the joy that's gone into this band.”

There had been rumours that the group might be planning further activities.They got back together in 2009 to headline Glastonbury other shows.

Previous winners included Sir Paul McCartney, U2 and Oasis.

Instead, lend a sympathetic ear. Ask questions. Picture things from the other person's point of view. A receptive attitude will strengthen your relationship.More
