Here Are Your Two New Blur Songs!

Damon Albarn (L) sings with drummer Dave Rowntree (C) and bassist Alex James (r) as the British alternative rock band Blur perform live on stage at the end of the BRIT Awards 2012 in London on February 21, 2012.

As promised, the temporarily (maybe?) reunited members of Blur took to a rooftop in London earlier this afternoon to debut their first new music since Record Day 2010. [Pause for some dudely hyperventilating.] If you missed the livestream or you prefer to listen to your new Blur music with the words spelled out clearly before you, then the convenient lyric videos for “Under the Westway” and “The Puritan” are below. Cue up the second one for some restrained head-bopping; go with “Under the Westway” if you’re feeling more reflective and/or have a musical instrument at hand to play along. They gave you the sheet music and everything. They want you to join in.
