Blur and new studio album.
Blur announce their eighth studio album. Titled "THE MAGIC WHIP", the album’s artwork was published in The Sun this morning with the suggestion that it’s for a “massive band, more than a decade after their last full studio release.”
The tabloid went on to add that the band’s last album was released in the Chinese year of the goat, which was 2003, the year Think Tank came out.
The Britpop survivors patched up their differences for a reunion gig in 2009 and were last heard to be recording in Hong Kong, which may explain the Chinese theme of the artwork.
"The Magic Whip" will be released on April 27th and the band will headline British Summer Time at Hyde Park on June 20th. Tickets go on sale Friday 27th at 9 am.
