Damon Albarn's indecisiveness regarding the future of Blur has been well-documented, with the will-they-won't-they speculation surrounding the possibility of a new album fuelled by the frontman himself, who recently stated that they would disband following their huge gig at the Olympics, only to later hint that he had been misquoted and that "nothing had been said about the beginning or the end [of the band]".
Then came producer William Orbit's suggestion that Albarn had decided halt the band's new recording sessions to the chagrin of the rest of the band, who Orbit said he was "kind of a shit to", a strange admission which was quickly negated by Alex James, who tweeted "I love being in the studio with blur".
But now there's a glimmer of hope for fans, as Albarn showcased what appears to be a new, untitled Blur track at the Poetry Olympics in London. In the song, which can be viewed below, Albarn rouses the crowd into a choiral harmony reminiscent of 13 track 'Tender'.
It sounds good and, if the reports are to be believed that this is a new Blur song, then I can't wait to hear what the rest of the band will bring to the table on it.
