Ooooh big changes then.

Personally I suspect we might be most likely to see a few gigs to sell another retrospective compilation. Expanded box sets seem to be the way to sell physical media at the moment and there's been a large number of arbitrary anniversary releases from Blur's peers recently (by which I mean 90s/00s acts, rather than quality/genre)

What about bringing our attention back to the fact that there were yet another photo shared on Blur´s social media yesterday?

A new image and cover photo for the official band fb page.

Is it wise to perhaps not try to overthink it?

Definitely on manoeuvres. I'd have said probably nothing more than a 25th vinyl reissue of Blur. Way too much going on for Damon this year.

Their management are so shithouse than any movement is both a signal that something is up, because they're too lazy and thoughtless to do anythign otherwise, and nothing at all is happening and someone's just gotten an email to change up a client's social media...

I wouldn't be opposed to a proper, well done, nicely designed compilation, retrospective, or reissue. doubt it's a new album.

I'm not really sure what the point would be in further re-issues of the back catalogue. The Blur 21 releases with bonus discs were great. Why re-release them again?

Because we live in a capitalist society and it'll make money?

Alex and Dave hosting Tim's Listening Party on the 10th February for the 25th anniversary. I mean is that it? Is that all we are getting

This makes one suspect new Blur activity in the coming months is not very likely!
