Producer William Orbit has revealed that Blur's Damon Albarn has halted the band's current recording sessions, confirming that the four-piece had been recording new material, but that the sessions were stopped "suddenly" three weeks ago.
"The new stuff sounded amazing," Orbit tells NME. "Then it all stopped suddenly. It was all over with Damon, and the rest of the band was like, 'Is this it?'".
Perhaps Orbit saw the writing on the wall so to speak. When replying to a tweet from one fan who asked for Blur news in March, Orbit replied: "Blur could have been good. But Damon, brilliant and talented tho he is, is kinda a s**t to the rest of Blur."
Last month, Albarn denied he was finished with Blur after earlier suggesting that their huge Hyde Park reunion gig to coincide with the close of this summer's Olympics in August would be their final show.
