Good news for Blur and Gorrilaz fans, Damon Albarn is backtracking on comments he made recently about how the end of both bands was looming. Albarn was interviewed by the Metro and was asked if the Hyde Park gig in August will be Blur's swansong, Albarn said, "No. That comes from an article which was an interesting take on a very long conversation. I don’t know how we’ll feel when we play Hyde Park. Some days I feel one way and other days I feel the other. If you don’t see something as a career but as an important part of your life, you don’t know how you’re going to feel about it. We want to put on a great performance but nothing’s been said between us about the beginning or the end." Albarn was then asked about the reported tiff he and Gorillaz artist Jamie Hewlett have had and he said, "When Jamie Hewlett and I have worked out our differences, I’m sure we’ll make another record. We’ve been through too much together for it to be that big of a mountain to climb. We’ve just fallen out like mates do sometimes. I’m not the only person to fall out with mates and then make up again – everyone does it."
