Blur doing a My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive esque album would be brilliant.

They wanted to make a shoe-gaze album with Leisure, but the record company were having none of it.

I’d love a new album next year, gigs are of less interest to me.

New album would be nice. It's been six years since The Magic Whip, nearly seven.

Before Magic Whip came along, I'd be ecstatic at news like this. But the songs on that album were so unmemorable that it showed that there's no guarantee of quality even with Damon's Blur stuff, let alone all his other ventures.
However, I guess Magic Whip was just demos that Damon didn't think were quite good enough, and Graham decided to polish.
If he's deliberately written a batch of proper Blur songs that he's happy with this time, perhaps we can expect a much better album.
Here's hoping!

I'd not get your hopes up for next summer. Here is Damon's schedule for next year http://www.vblurpage.com/news/tourdates.htm

And yesterday yet another Gorillaz festival gig was announced for August https://www.reddit.com/r/indieheads/com ... announced/

Damon will come in the studio for a day, bang out some ideas and say to Graham and Street "There ya go, have fun" and take off to do other things haha

But you never know with these guys!

And yes to a shoegaze album!!!

Can anyone confirm the rumour that if it is indeed a shoegazing album, it is likely to be sponsored by Clarks?

Nope, it will be sponsored by Miki Berenyi and the two Russells out of Moose.

Something does seem to be going on, their name seems to be dropping in popular culture all of a sudden. Song 2 was on the mask singer this week and I believe that pulls in quite a following too.

Blur just posted for the first time in a while on Instagram - an old 1990 picture of the band.

The last few posts going back to 2019 are only to promote releases

Could be nothing

If they keep posting, then I'll take it as a good sign. If it's just a one off pic from 1990, then I'll chalk it up to the usual social media mismanagement...
