Bloc Party frontman Kele Okereke has silenced rumours the band is over - by confirming plans to record a new album.
The singer sparked gossip the Helicopter hitmakers were heading for a break-up last year (09) when he admitted they "might never make a record again".
The speculation was fuelled when Okereke went on to record a solo album, The Boxer - but he is adamant he has every intention of keeping Bloc Party together.
He tells Britain's NME magazine, "I used to be in the band, and I will be again. I'm looking forward to seeing the other guys and making music with them. I just don't know when that will be.
"Now is about now, and it's all about having fun - it's the only reason I'm doing this. The last year of Bloc Party was really hard work. I don't have anything to prove and I have nothing to be nervous about."
