Blur front-man Damon Albarn has told fans that the band’s visit to Hong Kong this week is a chance for them to ‘record another record.’

The Britpop veterans were continuing their grand reunion for a second Summer when Damon confirmed fans’ greatest hopes.

The Gorillaz creator said: “We were supposed to be playing in Japan next week. Due to unforeseen circumstances we were unable to go there, although we will go there at some point.

“So we have a week in Hong Kong, and we thought it would be a good time to try to record another record, so we’re going to make one here in Hong Kong.”

Damon’s surprise statement did not confirm whether the record might be a single or an album and the prospect of recording an album within a week sounds unlikely. But it suggests that Blur are back into a creative space as a band.

Blur’s last studio album was 2003’s Think Tank, completed in the midst of Graham Coxon’s departure from the band.

Blur have launched a digital tour diary, inviting fans to create a scrapbook of their 2013 tour by signing in via Facebook and adding their memories.
