Damon Albarn has admitted that he hasn’t thought about playing with Blur since the band’s show at this year’s T In The Park (July 12).

Speaking about this summer’s reunion tour, which saw Blur play a mixture of old haunts and festivals, Albarn told The Guardian that the experience had been “euphoric”, though he is now keen to move on.

“I loved every second of it but then when it had finished it was like, we’ve all got to get on with our lives now,” Albarn explained. “After the last gig in Scotland I got on the train and left it all behind. That’s it, I haven’t thought about it since.”

The singer recently revealed the title of the next Gorillaz album, which he is currently working on. Called ‘Plastic Beach’, the album is set to be released in 2010.
