Blur are to play “The Magic Whip” in full at exclusive one-off show for fans on 20th march 2015. Watch the teaser HERE
Blur have announced that they will play their new album “The Magic Whip”, live and for the first time, at a one-off free show for fans at a small club in West London on Friday 20thMarch.
“The Magic Whip” is released on Parlophone on 27th April 2015 and is blur’s first album in 16 years as a four-piece. The recordings, which began during a five-day break in touring in Spring 2013 – at Avon Studios in Kowloon, Hong Kong – were put aside when the group finished touring and returned to their respective lives. Last November Graham Coxon revisited the tracks and, drafting in blur’s early producer Stephen Street, he worked with the band on the material. Albarn then added lyrics and the 12 tracks of The Magic Whip are the result.
The Magic Whip will be available as a digital download, on CD and as a 2-disc vinyl set.
As the only artists to play Hyde Park four times, blur will return to the historic London park for a headline show on Saturday 20th June 2015 as part of Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park.
