Blur to produce new record with William Orbit - 2012

This is possibly the most exciting news of January 2012 - Blur is possibly going to collaborate with William Orbit, another English electronic/ alternative record producer who produced Blur's sixth album "13" in 1999, possibly for a new track / record in the making.

On William Orbit's twitter (click to visit) he tweeted the following messages, one to Graham Coxon and one to World Circuit.

The tweet to Graham Coxon seems to suggest that Orbit is meeting with Graham on March 3rd 2012, for a "vocal session".

Then his second tweet clearly says that he will be in the studio with Damon Albarn from Wednesday.

Blur will be performing at the Brit Awards in 2012, and there has been some speculation about whether there will be a practice gig or some warm-up event, and Damon and the gang has been dropping many hints about possibly making records or even an album !
