No time for love, Doctor Jones. Okay, that’s not entirely true; although I have a heavy workload today, I’m entirely distracted by thoughts of fandom, if not love: Blur has announced a new album — the band’s first since 2003’s Think Tank — out in a couple of months, and I’m ridiculously excited. Part of me is positive that such enthusiasm is a mistake, because how many bands come back after 12 year breaks with great stuff, really? Then I remember how much I loved Damon Albarn’s Everyday Robots album last year, or 2013’s “Under the Westway” single, and my excitement carries me away again. Please don’t suck, new Blur album. I’m not sure I could take that.
