Asked by The Metro if Blur have received any offers to put on some major ‘reunion’ shows, Albarn confirmed the discussions but also revealed that the band had decided to turn them down.
“Yes, they have been. I’d only want to perform that if it was a positive thing,” Albarn explained.
Detailing a little further, Albarn said that if the Brexit situation was to change the band would have been more inclined to ‘celebrate’ their previous work: “Say we got to the point of having a second referendum, then I would be happy to play that record as a celebration and as a way of reminding ourselves of a time when we had an idea of Britishness that wasn’t political,” he said.
“It was more about our music and culture,” he continued. “That was a bit naive, no question, but it had a funny side, it had a humour to it. So I’m not against performing that album but I wouldn’t want to do it if I felt like it was just about money.”
