Blame The Weather: No New Blur Album?
July 29th, 2014
Damon Albarn is killing me with this. He says there'd be a new Blur album, but they worked stalled because the weather was terrible.
"There was too much commuting between where we were staying and where we were recording and it was a bit too hot," he notes. "I think that's why we didn't get it finished."
15 tracks are in various states of completion, but that could be the end of it.
"There's some great tunes on there, but it may just be one of those records that never comes out," he said, admitting he found himself in a bit of a creative dry spell. "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."
Hat tip to Spin for the quotes, though it's not really what I wanted to hear.
