A few weeks back Damon Albarn was quoted by The Guardian saying that any potential work down the line with either Blur or Gorillaz was "unlikely." Albarn has now come forward to say that neither project has reached their ultimate conclusion.

In a new interview with Metro Albarn says his statements about Hyde Park being Blur's last show "[came] from an article which was an interesting take on a very long conversation. I don’t know how we’ll feel when we play Hyde Park. Some days I feel one way and other days I feel the other. If you don’t see something as a career but as an important part of your life, you don’t know how you’re going to feel about it. We want to put on a great performance but nothing’s been said between us about the beginning or the end."

In regards to Gorillaz, Albarn says he's optimistic that his recent fallout with co-founder Jamie Hewlett will pass at some point down the road: "When Jamie Hewlett and I have worked out our differences, I’m sure we’ll make another record. We’ve been through too much together for it to be that big of a mountain to climb. We’ve just fallen out like mates do sometimes. I’m not the only person to fall out with mates and then make up again – everyone does it."    

With a massive retrospective box set scheduled for release on July 30, Blur are to play London's Hyde Park on Aug. 12.
