Chemical Brothers to help on new Blur album

The Chemical Brothers are planning to help produce Blur's new album.

The Chemical Brothers are planning to help produce Blur's new album.

Band member Ed Simons told Rolling Stone they have been approached to produce or co-produce some of the tracks.

They will shortly be back in the studio to work on the follow-up to their last album Come With Us.

Ed said of Blur: "They want us to listen to some music they're making with the possibility of producing or co-producing with them."

The Chemical Brothers are considering using unknown vocalists for the new album, despite using high-profile collaborators in the past.

Simons added: "I think it'd be great to find someone, to get someone strange out of Rough Trade Records and pursue it from there rather than work with these big iconic figures.

"I loved working with Richard Ashcroft, Noel Gallagher and Bernard Sumner, but it'd just be cool to do someone people have never heard of."
