Blur has no plans for new album but open to making movie soundtrack | Music News

Blur frontman Damon Albarn has revealed that the popular London band formerly known as Seymour would be interested in making a movie soundtrack.

With the likes of Daft Punk (Tron: Legacy), Trent Reznor (The Social Network and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) and RZA (Ghost Dog, Kill Bill and Afro Samurai) having produced, organised and composed several acclaimed and high-profile film scores, a similar Blur project wouldn’t be too far-fetched and would make for an interesting departure for the band.

Though the group isn’t likely to produce a full studio album anytime soon, Albarn did suggest the band would be open to recording a special one-off project like a film score.

Set to take Hyde Park by storm on 12 August, the singer-songwriter intimated the upcoming gigs may very well be the band’s last for a long time, stressing:

“But that doesn’t mean it’s the end of Blur.

“If someone wanted us to do an album for a film I’d definitely be interested in something like that. So that’s the offer.”

The famous London band recently released two new tracks as stand alone singles: “The Puritan” and “Under the Westway.”
