Blur will record another album?

Damon Albarn apparently hinted that Blur might record a new album

Blur are set to record a new album, according to reports.

The band, who are touring Asia, have apparently started putting down ideas for their first full collection in a decade.

Frontman Damon Albarn told a crowd in Hong Kong that the band could be recording while filling in a gap in their schedule.

He was quoted as saying: "We were supposed to be playing in Japan next week. Due to unforeseen circumstances we were unable to go there.

"So we have a week in Hong Kong and we thought it would be a good time to try to record another record, so we're going to make one here."

The Britpop band - Damon, Alex James, Graham Coxon and Dave Rowntree - first reunited in 2009 after spitting in 2003.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

Read the fine print on a contract. If you're not happy with the proposed terms of a deal, renegotiate. Don't be afraid to drive a hard bargain. You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
