In other Blur news, Alex James has revealed to that the band will meet up shortly and 'probably' record again. James said:
We're getting together for a Christmas drink next week which is nice. We still see each other all the time, more since we were all living out of a suitcase.
He added: "We'll probably record again."

James hinted that the band may not release a full album though, commenting: "Is there such a thing as an album? Does music have to come 12 tracks at a time?" The bassist said that he didn't know what the music would sound like due to "Damon doing operas," adding that it would be like" getting The Blues Brothers back together."
