Will Blur continue after the release of The Magic Whip? The question is up in the air according to guitarist Graham Coxon who spoke to Uncut. The guitarist said, "I view it as a great big positive punctuation mark. I don’t know whether it’s the full stop at the end of a book or whether it’s a full stop at the end of a chapter. I don’t think any of us know that yet. That doesn’t mean any of us are going to stop making music. Music is a constant with us. Damon will make music whether it’s with Blur or doing other things, he’ll always be meandering along making music."

While Blur will release their new album next month, De La Soul are looking to release a new record later this year and the British band's front man, Damon Albarn is apart of it. The iconic Long Island rappers are releasing their new album, which will begin recording next month and have launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise $110,000 to make it.
