Speaking about his ambient new solo album, The Nearer The Fountain, More Pure The Stream Flows which arrives in November (pre-order here), Albarn revealed that since completing the album in February he’s “been working on carnival-themed music with Gorillaz with a lot of people from west London. We’re really going back to the spirit of the first record.”

But Blur fans rejoice because that’s not all! Albarn also revealed that he’d be down for a “post-pandemic reunion” with the band and had been speaking with drummer Dave Rowntrees about the possibility, saying:
“Well, we did have a chat recently, but we haven’t really progressed further than that. We did have an idea though; I’ve just been a bit busy at the moment obviously. When it happens, I’ll be made up.”
Considering that Blur has been on hiatus 2015’s The Magic Whip, this news is music to our ears!
