With Blur set to playLondon's Hyde Park this evening (12 August), frontman Damon Albarn admits the band's future is still "undecided".
The group are due onstage around 9pm (BST) as part of the celebration to mark the end of the London 2012 Olympic Games for their last billed gig of the year, but the singer admits he's unsure whether this is a swansong or a rebirth.
"Will Blur do another album? It's very much on my mind. I feel very... torn between a lot of different emotions. I'm undecided about how I feel," Albarn tells Miranda Sawyer in the cover story of our current issue.
"There's a part of me that would love to be able to bring it into our 40s and our sort of family world. But does it belong in that world? Do any of us need that?"
However if he and the rest of Blur decide to continue, Albarn is promising there will be no half measures.
"I don't want to just do gigs," he declares. "I want to do something that has genuine resonance and helps explains to me why I am there. Something that explains to everyone who is the field why they're there. I do believe in the spirit. It's what drives me."
