About an hour ago (11.30pm July 19 NZ Time) BlurOfficial tweeted two enigmatic tweets – hinting, perhaps that there will be news of new Blur material in July.
One message read “#Blur #ThePuritan @blurofficial / 7.15pm / 2nd July” and included an Instagram image as follows
Followed by a second tweet
Albarn had performed a new track The Puritan last week during his performance at the Poetry Olympics in London
This comes after reports in May that William Orbit, who had been working with the reformed band as producer had confirmed that they had been recording new material, but that the sessions were stopped “suddenly”
“The new stuff sounded amazing,” he reportedly had said, “Then it all stopped suddenly. It was all over with Damon, and the rest of the band were like, ‘Is this it?’”.
