So this is either the real-deal here, or it is someone messing around with information. Blur is supposedly set to produce new material this year, working with William Orbit in January to record and remix some new tracks, but Blur's Wikipedia page has been edited on and off these two days.
Yesterday, the page for Blur's 2012 album, supposedly called "Mirror Press" has been put up, removed, added back and removed AGAIN from their discography. Now the tracklist for the album has been revealed and the song names are:
- Dog Years
- Mirror Press
- Just Look Around
- Nostalgic Song
- From a Silent Film
- Secret Den
- Caster Song
- Growing Nails
- On The Road Tonight
- Faster Life
- Room 101
It seems that some song names are quite unusual (Growing Nails ! ) but this COULD be true. There still hasn't been any confirmation or leakage from the band and their management, and there's no news from William Orbit himself.
Visit their wikipedia site yourself to see (Click here). (Edit: It has been removed again. This may just be someone's edit for fun).
