Blur Confirm a Reunion and a Studio Work Schedule


On behalf of Blur, bassist Alex James revealed that all of the members including guitarist Graham Coxon will return to the studio this October.

Finally, a definite reunion will fall upon Blur, a band that helped reviving the second Britpop invasion after The Beatles. Bassist Alex James has confirmed a studio work will take place in October and said that "it's looking promising".

"Funnily enough, people have been talking to each other. I don't think Graham (Coxon) and Dave (Rowntree) have spoken for quite some time and there's been a flurry of texting and long chats which is good. I'm very hopeful," James told BBC.

Plans on the new album have even been laid out. James revealed, "Good guitars would be good. But I mainly talk to Graham about mandolins and prog music."

Guitarist Graham Coxon left the band in 2002 due to "creative differences".The remaining members proceeded recording a new album 'Think Tank' that was released in 2003. Each of them have been occupied with solo projects ever since, but James thinks that the break was actually necessary.

"It's actually been brilliant to have a bit of time apart from each other," he said. "I think we all needed it as people. I think we'd all be unbearable if we'd carried on living that kind of lifestyle. It's given us all time to find ourselves a little bit."

"What's great is that none of us need to do it now. We've all found other things to do so we can all approach things rationally and say 'Would this be good?' and I think it would be emotionally for all of us. It's a shame Graham wasn't involved in the last record, now he feels he's ready. And its quite exciting actually."
