As previously reported by AOL Music, Coxon tweeted on Feb. 3, "Now off to see the Blur boys and have coffee and maybe switch a tape recorder on!" The tweet was subsequently deleted, ensuring speculation surrounding the band's plans to record together again swiftly arose.
Now the guitarist has explained the situation. He told the NME, "Every now and then we like to meet up and record a few things. We just do stuff when we feel like it."
While the band will continue to reconvene as the mood takes them, they have no plans to release whatever they record. Coxon explained: "I suppose it might turn into an LP in six years or something. Meeting up every now and then ... maybe turning the tape recorder on and jamming around a few ideas."
Blur's future may be relatively uncertain but for Coxon his plans are much clearer. Two new solo albums are in the works while 'Desire' -- a collaborative song commissioned by recent saviours of the 100 Club, Converse, and featuring Paloma Faith and ex-Coral guitarist Bill Ryder-Jones -- is set for release in April.
