New Blur Album Is Ready, But Might Never Be Released, Says Damon Albarn
Blur frontman Damon Albarn has recently revealed that the band's new album is somewhat wrapped up and ready to go, but might never see the light of day.

Explaining the confusing situation, the musician told NME, "There are about 15 songs we recorded in Hong Kong. The annoying thing is, if I'd been able to write the lyrics there and then about being there, we'd have finished the record.

"But sometimes, if you can't do it all at once, it dissipates really and I don't know what I'd sing about now with that record. There's some great tunes on there, but it may just be one of those records that never comes out."

The frontman elaborated further, adding, "I'd do some more work on it. I like making records in short periods of time if I can. It was a different process with 'Everyday Robots' because that was really thought out, but sometimes it's great to get some amazing energy and do something in 10 days.

"There was too much commuting between where we were staying and where we were recording and it was a bit too hot. I think that's why we didn't get it finished," he concluded.
