13 is the sixth studio album by English alternative rock band Blur, released on 15 March 1999. Continuing the stylistic shift away from the Britpop sound of the band's early career, 13 explores experimental, psychedelic and electronic music. Recording took place from June to October 1998 in London and Reykjavík. The album marks a departure of the band's longtime producer, Stephen Street, with his role being filled by William Orbit. Relationships between the band members were reported to be strained. 13 tracks 66:44. 13 is the sixth album by English alternative rock band Blur, released in March 1999. The album reached number one in the UK Albums Chart and number 80 in the US Billboard 200. 13 spawned three hit singles: Tender, Coffee & TV and No Distance Left to Run. Recording history: 13 sees the band moving further away from their Britpop past into more cerebral and denser musical territory. Some of the songs, however, are evocative of songs from their previous efforts, such as Bugman, Coffee & TV, 1992 and Optigan 1. Much of the album was inspired by Damon Albarn's breaku. Blur fits the mold of the monosyllabic, schwa- voweled noun system of Brit-rock nomenclature- Pulp, Bush, Lush, Suede. Now, after nearly a decade, Blur have grown comfortable with their image and talents. Despite Graham Coxon's fingerprints, 13 is Damon Albarn's record from start to finish. From the opening epic, Tender, in which Albarn delivers the line Love's the greatest thing that we have with a sarcastic croon after admiting that his heart screwed up his life, to the beautiful, stripped closer, No Distance Left to Run, in which he sighs with resignation, It's over You don't need to tell me I hope you're with. 13 also marks the first time in Blurs career that they deliberately decided against having Stephen Street as a producer, as the band, and Albarn in particular, wanted to pursue a different sound that would be unlike anything they had done before. They instead used William Orbit, whose remix of Movin' On had impressed the band. Like its predecessors, the album was a huge commercial hit, being their fourth consecutive UK 1 album and spawning three top 20 singles.

The album produced three singles Tender, Coffee & TV and No Distance Left to Run which charted at number 2, number 11 and number 14 respectively on the UK Singles Chart. Blur's penitence for Brit-pop continues with the aptly named 13, which deals with star-crossed situations like personal and professional breakups with Damon Albarn's longtime girlfriend, Justine Frischmann of Elastica, and the group's longtime producer, Stephen Street. Building on Blur's un-pop experiments, the group's ambitions to expand their musical and emotional horizons result in a half-baked baker's dozen of songs, featuring some of their most creative peaks and self-indulgent valleys.
