British band Blur is heading back to the studio in early 2011 for the group's first album as a quartet in more than a decade, according to U.K. reports.
The Parklife hitmakers returned to the music scene after a six-year hiatus to headline a series of U.K. festivals last year (09).
Frontman Damon Albarn, who has been touring with his other band Gorillaz, revealed earlier this year (10) that the group was planning to work together again next year (11).
And according to Britain's The Sun, the rockers are preparing to record a new album - their first complete work since 1999's 13.
A source tells the publication, "The lads will be getting in the studio early next year. There's no concrete plans regarding what they will do with the material, but if they're all agreed it could become the first full Blur album to feature all four members in over a decade.
"When they went into the studio earlier this year everyone was really pleased to discover that the old magic was still there. They would have liked to have done more, but Damon could not take part due to his commitments with Gorillaz.
"Now that he's finished touring with the band he has more time on his hands."
