Damon Albarn – New Blur Record “May never come out”

July 29, 2014

Earlier in the year, Damon Albarn teased us by saying he had 15 new Blur songs, but it was still unclear if that meant a new Blur record. Now Albarn says that the songs may never see the light of day. He said about when the tunes were recorded in Hong Kong, “There was too much commuting between where we were staying and where we were recording and it was a bit too hot. I think that’s why we didn’t get it finished.” Maybe someday Albarn will change his mind and finish the record.
