Reformed British band Blur are recording tracks for their first new album since 2003 - but fans face a six-year wait to hear the songs.

The "Parklife" hit makers revealed last year they were planning to record as Blur once again, but in January, drummer Dave Rowntree claimed they had still not entered a studio together. Now guitarist Graham Coxon has revealed Blur are recording tracks sporadically - although it could be a long time before they're released.

He tells NME magazine, "I suppose every now and then we like to meet up and record a few things. Whether it sees the light of day or not is a different thing. We just do stuff when we feel like it. I'd quite like to have a bit of time so you can really get stuck in.

He adds, "Well, I doubt it (will be released this year). Because all we're doing is getting together every now and then when we really feel the need. We don't feel obliged in that way. That kind of thing f**ked Blur up in the first place - the obligation, the work. Especially with me... We're going to do it regularly. I suppose it might turn into an LP in six years or something." Blur's last album was "Think Tank", released in 2003.
