Blur won't record after this summer

LONDON, April 9 (UPI) -- Members of the British alternative rock band Blur say they have no plans to record after their performance at the London Olympics this summer.

The group was founded in 1989, broke up in 2003, then reformed in 2008.

The BBC said Blur will perform its new song "This is Under the Westway" at an Aug. 12 show in Hyde Park celebrating the end of the Summer Olympics.

"It's the first Blur song where it's been one take, because previously I never finished the lyrics before we recorded -- which is quite nice, because I don't really see any more recordings after this," singer Damon Albarn told The Guardian. "I hope that's the truth: that that's how we end it."

"I find it very easy to record with Graham [Coxon,] he's a daily musician," he added. "With the other two [Alex James and Dave Rowntree,] it's harder for them to reconnect. It's fine when we play live -- it's really magical still -- but actually recording new stuff, and swapping musical influences… it's quite difficult."
