Alternative rock band, Blur, are to receive an outstanding contribution to music award at next years BRIT awards.
The English band, who were popular in the 90s, won four BRITs back in 1995 for their Parklife album.
Lead singer Damon Albarn told the BBC:
"It's great to have recognition for all the work and all the heartache and all the joy that's gone into this band."
Guitarist Graham Coxon agreed saying that the band are exactly the same as they were in the 90s:
"We're the same gang we ever were, we've just landed in a different era.
"Or possibly we're a totally different Blur still playing the old tunes in 1991 forever. I haven't decided.
"But it's always nice to get a BRIT Award."
The four members reunited in 2009 for a concert in Hyde Park and also headlined Glastonbury in the same year, but later quashed any rumours of a new album being released.
Previous winners of the award include Oasis and Sir Paul McCartney.
The BRITs will take place on 21 Feburary 2012 and are set to be hosted by James Corden.
It is not yet known if Blur will perform on the night.
