Britpop giants Blur will release huge box set | PA

Blur fans are in for a treat - the band is putting out 65 previously unreleased tracks as part of a huge album box set.

The group will re-release its seven albums as part of a box set in.

The collection will also include the unheard tracks, a new interview with the rockers, previously unseen photos, and a special limited edition seven-inch vinyl disc.

Frontman Damon Albarn hinted earlier this month that the band's upcoming summer concert to celebrate the London Olympics will be its final gig.

Quashing speculation that an album of fresh material will follow, Albarn said: "I'll give it (the concert) 100 per cent, like I did last time. And that's it. And I hope that's the truth: that that's how we end it."

Blur formed in 1989 and were, alongside Oasis, the giants of the famed Brit-pop music era in the '90s. Their last album was 2003's Think Tank.
