This has certainly been a day to remember! Why? Because for the first time since 2003, Blur will release a new album. The album is called The Magic Whip and was recorded in Hong Kong last year. It’s been well known among Blur fans that the band had recorded in Hong Kong, but everything the band members said up to now suggested the recordings didn’t come to anything. But obviously not, because a new album is here!
A new track from the album, Go Out, is available to listen to now:
This is certainly a huge day for me and other Blur fans. I’ve been a huge fan for as long as I can remember and have wanted a new album since Think Tank came out in 2003. And finally, we have one!
Blur will also be headlining at BST Hyde Park in London, where songs from the new album will make their way into the setlist. This also means a full tour is also possible! The Hyde Park show is on Saturday the 20th June and tickets are available on Friday the 27th February.
The album is out on the 27th April and is available to pre-order NOW.
