Blur to get Outstanding Contribution honour at Brit Awards

Brit Awards 2012

Blur will receive an Outstanding Contribution To Music award at next year's Brit Awards, reports The Guardian and BBC.

"It's great to have recognition for all the work and all the heartache and all the joy that's gone into this band," said Damon Albarn.

Past winners of the trophy include Bob Geldof, Sir Paul McCartney and Pet Shop Boys. The award ceremony will take place on 21st February at London's O2 arena. Blur are highly expected to perform a few songs at the event as this has been a tradition with previous winners.

Meanwhile, the official Blur website is due to be partially closed from today (Dec 8) for "an exciting redesign". Read the brief announcement on forums.blur.co.uk [link down]. In conjuction with redesign, the band have launched their own Twitter and Google+ profiles today.

In other Blur news, Alex James has revealed to NME.com that they will meet up shortly and 'probably' record again. He said: "We're getting together for a Christmas drink next week which is nice. We still see each other all the time, more since we were all living out of a suitcase."
