Reunited Blur Writing New Songs

By |

Fresh off their first reunion shows last weekend, Blur are already working on some new songs during their rehearsals and jam sessions, guitarist Graham Coxon and bassist Alex James tell BBC's 6 Music. The fresh tracks are the first the band has worked on collectively since the sessions for Think Tank's closer "Battery In Your Leg," the last Blur song to feature writing credits for Coxon in 2003.

Even though the Brit-pop band is jamming out new material, fans shouldn't expect to hear any new tracks during their reunion tour. "We wouldn't want to just sling stuff together to play this summer. It wouldn't be right," Coxon says, adding that they don't just want to rush out new material. "We really don't want to put ourselves under any pressure. I think we want to have fun with these gigs and then we'll think about that really." The Damon Albarn-fronted quartet will close out the Glastonbury Festival with a headlining set on June 28th.
