LISTEN: New Blur
'Under The Westway' and 'The Puritan' were debuted last night.
The Hot Press Newsdesk, 03 Jul 2012
It's fair to say yesterday was a bit of 'an event' for any former Brit poppers or lovers of decent British music in general. Damon, Graham, Alex and Dave unveiled their first new material since the one-off 'Fool's Day' of 2010. Streaming through Twitter, the four took to a rooftop for runs through the meditative, stately 'Under The Westway' (think 'This Is A Low' sentiment mixed with 'A Whiter Shade Of Pale' vibes) and 'The Puritan' (a more frenetic proposition that culminates in an earwormy "la la" refrain). You can hear the studio versions of both below, and check out the lyrics. If you like 'em, snap up via iTunes.
