The surprise release of brand new single, ‘Go Out’ alongside the announcement of forthcoming record, The Magic Whip and Hyde Park shows left millions across the UK with gaping mouths earlier this week. Blur: please take a bow.
One of the most influentially iconic bands to hail from the UK, Blur, announced their comeback with The Magic Whip at a Chinese restaurant in West London. The first product to be unveiled from the studio album, released April 27th, is the brooding storm of excitement, ‘Go Out’.
Featuring a moody, faultless vocal performance from Blur’s frontman, Damon Albarn and a concoction of fuzzy guitar lines from Graham Coxon; ‘Go Out’ is the ultimate effortless comeback track, powerfully proving that anything Blur touches turns to sheer, solidified gold.
Accompanied by a peculiar video boasting how to create ice-cream – tying in with The Magic Whip‘s artwork – ‘Go Out’ is a heavenly cocktail of old Blur and new. If you’ve found yourself cursing “L-o-o-ocal” under your breath upon hearing ‘Go Out’ then there’s no need to worry: you’ve caught the Blur bug and symptoms are only going to intensify.
