Damon Albarn said he was thinking about returning to Blur
Damon Albarn has hinted that a Blur reunion could be on the cards after he recently met up with former guitarist Graham Coxon.
The singer said the pair had lunch and he is thinking about returning to his original band.
He said: "It's very possible I'll go back to Blur, it really is very possible.
"The truth be known Graham and I have been hanging out together a bit. We had lunch the other day."
Coxon left the band in 2002 to pursue a solo career while the remaining members went on to record their last release Think Tank, a year later.
Bassist Alex James hinted at a reunion in August 2007.
But when the band met up two months later they revealed on their official site that they "met up for an enjoyable lunch" but there were no "other music plans for Blur".
Albarn said it was good to see his old band member again.
He added: "He's great, it's fantastic to get my old friend back. So it's good but I can't really say any more than that."
Over the last five years, the Blur frontman has become heavily involved with side projects The Good, The Bad And The Queen, Africa Express and his other band Gorillaz who he is currently working with on a new album.
"I'm halfway through the next Gorillaz album at the minute," he said. "That's going to be interesting and different again.
"This next time around there will be a lot going on in it."
Albarn is also in the process of bringing his opera Monkey: Journey To The West back to London after it enjoyed success at the Royal Opera House over the summer.
The show, which is performed entirely in Mandarin, is to be staged in the confines of the 02 Arena from 12 November.
