Damon Albarn announces New album

Supergroup The Good, The Bad & The Queen may have already produced their second record, with Damon Albarn revealing that he has "got" the record. Albarn's band – which also features The Clash bassist Paul Simonon, The Verve guitarist Simon Tong and drummer Tony Allen – were last seen performing two gigs in London in November 2011.

The group's self-titled debut album was released in 2007. In an interview with The Sun yesterday (December 18), however, Albarn said that as well at a new Gorillaz record, "I’ve also got a Good, the Bad and the Queen record. It will either be Gorillaz or that [that comes next] and then I might be allowed to go back into my own solo world or another musical."

As early as July, Albarn had said that he could record a new Gorillaz album "next week," while in October he described the animated act's new material as "really fast" with "quite a lot of energy."

On the new Gorillaz album, Albarn said: "I'm in the very early days on a new Gorillaz record. So far, it's really fast, and it's got quite a lot of energy. I've been stuck on piano, somewhere off Broadway, for years now. I want to go somewhere completely opposite of that." Over a year ago, in October 2014, Albarn told the Sydney Morning Herald a new album by The Good, The Bad & The Queen is fully written.

Albarn reinvented Alice in Wonderland for Manchester International Festival earlier this year, and had to be carried off set at Danish Festival Roskilde after refusing to stop his show after five and a half hours.

Blur's eighth album "Mirror Press" track list announced - 2012

BREAKING NEWS: The tracklist for britpop superstars Blur's new album "Mirror Press" is released on Wikipedia :

mirrorpress, blur mirror press, blur wiki, blur album new

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:
  1. Dog Years
  2. Mirror Press
  3. Just Look Around
  4. Nostalgic Song
  5. From a Silent Film
  6. Secret Den
  7. Insomnia
  8. Caster Song
  9. Fable
  10. Growing Nails
  11. On The Road Tonight
  12. Faster Life
  13. 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).  

We are just as puzzled as you are - and we're on the watch out for any breaking news right now, this week, about Blur's potential new release. This year is going to be a great year for Blur and us fans and you're very welcome to contact us if anything crops up.
