Album description: 

Marking their ten years as a band, “13″ is the sound of Blur becoming, according to Damon, “completely free”. The album was created from lengthy improvisations around song structures, recorded and painstakingly edited by producer William Orbit. Lyrically, the songs are rooted in personal and emotional changes, most notably on two of the singles – “Tender” & the heartbreaking “No Distance Left To Run”. The album also sees song writing contributions by Graham Coxon, most notably on “Coffee & TV” where the guitarist takes lead vocal duties.
