That Blur Record Store Day single generated significant buzz for both the event and the band, and has naturally led to fans clamoring for more material from Damon Albarn and his group. No shows or recordings are scheduled at present, but the singer has hinted that we might not have to wait much longer.
Despite being busy with Gorillaz, Albarn claims that the “Fool’s Day” seven-inch wasn’t a one-off, and more singles may be on the way. “I’m definitely going to do a few more of those seven-inches,” he said in an interview on the NME website. “I love the no pressure aspect.”
Sadly, anyone waiting for a full-blown album by Blur looks like they might be in for a long wait. “We can’t do it all the time,” he continued. “So I don’t want anyone to think there’s an album coming soon, it’s not possible, but we’ve got songs.” Now all we need to add to those “songs” are a set of North American tour dates from the band.
