Blur Premiering Two New Songs Next Monday On Twitter

Written by Mike Hohnen on June 25, 2012

After learning that Brit-pop icons Blur were in fact not calling it quits earlier this year, news has been coming in thick and fast from the Blur camp, who have announced that they will be unveiling two new tracks this coming Monday.

While we’ve already heard one track from their new material, these two will be done differently. The band will take to Twitter to preview the tracks via a live video stream.

The two songs The Puritian and Under the West Way were written with a very specific purpose – to be showcased at their much-talked-about sold-out gig at Hyde Park. During an interview, Damon Albarn said: “I wrote these songs for Hyde Park and I’m really excited about getting out there and playing them for people”, according to NME. Following the live stream, both songs will be immediately available to download. A limited edition double A-side 7-inch single will be released through Parlophone on August 6.

The band teased fans via Twitter earlier after posting a very vague message to followers suggesting there is new material on the way:

 

 

Following the performance at Hyde Park, the band will then begin a series of intimate dates around Europe and the UK. Following news of the new release, we have also been told that Blur will soon be releasing ’21′: an anthological collection of all their releases to date.

Check out a preview of what to expect below:
