Graham Coxon says Blur are planning their comeback album

Blur guitarist Graham Coxon has revealed that his alternative Brit-pop band, indeed, have plans to churn out a new Blur album. Although he hasn’t exactly spelled out when the reunified group will begin work on the new songs, he says the chaps definitely plan to hit the studio soon.

Speaking with NME, Coxon stated that 2009 was an “amazing healing experience” for the band. “We were really swept away with it and got a lot out of our systems,” he said. “We realized how much we still had in common, that we are good friends, that we are brothers. We’re always going to meet up and want to play things.

“We do like recording. Eventually, even if things aren’t around the corner, Blur will do more recordings together. We all love each other and still like making music so that’s not a bad start.”

Right now, Blur are rehearsing for their first show as a reunited group at the upcoming Brit Awards. They’ll also pick up the Outstanding Contribution to Music Award at the ceremony, which will be held Feb. 21 at the O2 Arena.

When asked about the band’s preparations for the big gig, Coxon stated, “It’s pretty nice to be getting the Brit award. We haven’t planned the rehearsals yet, but there will definitely be another Blur album.” Are you stoked to hear Blur are planning a comeback?
