After a long and arduous wait for fans worldwide, Blur finally released two brand new tracks, 'Under The Westway' and 'The Puritan', after performing them live from a rooftop in London during a livestream on their official website.
Both tracks are available to listen to below, with links to download them in the description boxes:
The anthemic 'Under The Westway' is lyrically a spiritual successor to Modern Life is Rubbish's 'For Tomorrow', with shades of 'This is a Low' thrown in there for good measure. On the other hand, 'The Puritan' is a vibrant number filled with cheap synth sounds and scratchy guitars that wouldn't sound out of place on their self-titled LP, with guitarist Graham Coxon's input clearly audible.
So, two new songs that represent two sides of the multi-faceted personality of Blur. What do you think?
