Blur are set to reunite again to record a new album, it's been reported.


Damon Albarn, Alex James, Dave Rowntree and Graham Coxon have apparently scheduled a recording session in January and could release the LP by the end of 2011.

A source told The Sun: “There's no concrete plans regarding what they will do with the material, but if they're all agreed it could become the first full Blur album to feature all four members in over a decade.”

Calls for a full album have been persistent since Blur reunited with Coxon in 2008 for a series of gigs the following year.

The band went on to record and release a special one-off single, entitled 'Fool's Day', earlier this year, which was included in Gigwise's Top-50 Songs Of 2010.

The band's last album as a four-piece, '13', was released in 1999.
