Graham Coxon hints at new Blur album


Graham Coxon has suggested that there could well be a new Blur album in the offering.

The last studio LP to come from Blur was 2015’s The Magic Whip, the band’s eighth studio album. That record followed 2003’s Think Tank and signalled the end of the longest gap between new material in the history of the band.

Now, three years after that release, Coxon has suggested that the band could still make more music together. while appearing on podcast Kyle Meredith With…, Coxon revealed he was open to the idea: “I really don’t see why not? Why there can’t be another Blur album. We’re all still alive and in reasonable control of our faculaties,” he said.

“These thing just happen when they need to happen. We all do different things and then there is going to be one day when it hits us, that is seems like a good idea to do that now. I don’t think these things can ever be forced into happening… [There will] be a time when the notion comes upon us all, the stars aligned, and we go ‘yeah, why not.’ That’s how it’s always worked, really.”
