have reported that:

Damon Albarn has formed a new band for his next project.

The Blur frontman was working on a solo project with Danger Mouse producing, but now the pair have switched their attention to working on a new album called ‘The Good The Bad And The Queen’.

The record has been recorded by the new group which features The Clash‘s bassist Paul Simonon, former Verve man and auxiliary Blur guitarist Simon Tong (most underrated guitarist ever) and drummer Tony Allen along with Albarn.

They plan to release their debut single in October, before the full album – a concept record about London – is released in January next year.

The group will make their live debut at the BBC‘s Electric Proms season at revamped Camden venue The Roundhouse this October.

Sound like Britians answer to The Raconteurs. We haven’t had a descent supergroup since Cream. It will be worth praying for Damon to use the talent around him in the way that it should be. As in; make an sublime popband. Not use this as another attempt to create an underwhelming arty album (e.g Think Tank 2.0). He will have to do quite a lot of work to out do former Blur guitarist Graham Coxon, having created some of the best alternative/pop/rock ever with his last two albums.
