Blur debuts new song "Under The Westway," confirms new album is in the works

After rumblings of a new Blur album and tour were heard back in November, Blur has quietly resurfaced—at a charity show in London—with new material. Damon Albarn, fresh off his Gorillaz collaboration with Andre 3000 and James Murphy for Converse, reunited with Blur bandmate Graham Coxon to debut “Under The Westway,” a pretty, plaintive acoustic ballad, at a benefit concert for the NGO War Child International. The set marked the first live performance by Blur since 2009, and Coxon reportedly confirmed that there is a new Blur album on the way. The new release will mark a welcome return from a long dormant period on the Blur album timeline—the band hasn’t released a full-length collection since 2003’s Think Tank

The band will also perform at tomorrow night’s Brit Awards at the 02 Arena in London. [via Spin]
