soundgenerator: Report: Blur reforming this summer | Sound Generator Blur reforming this summer The band members finally back together
A new Blur album is looking an ever more promising bet for 2008, with at least two reports confirming the individual band members have cleared their schedules later this year to work on a new album.
The British rockers have been silent since 2003's "Think Tank", with Damon Albarn heading up two critically acclaimed acts, Gorillaz and the Good The Bad and the Queen, while guitarist Graham Coxon left to go solo.
However, the band are all said to be in agreement to begin recording sessions later this year for a new album.
"They've all had lots on, with solo projects, cartoon bands, political campaigns and farming," a source reveals to a British tabloid this week. "But by the end of the summer their plates with be clear. They'll go into the studio together in November.
Bassist Alex James echoed the report recently, telling TV chef Gordon Ramsey, "We're getting back together this year, finally. We've all spend some time apart growing up a bit".
