    Woo hoo!

    It's been 16 years since their last album as a four-piece but on April 27, Blur will release a brand new album called The Magic Whip via Parlophone/Warners, and pre-orders are up now iTunes.

    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.

    #Global. #RealLife.

    Last November, Graham Coxon revisited the tracks and, drafting in Blur's early producer Stephen Street, he worked with the band on the material. Damon Albarn then added lyrics and the 12 tracks of The Magic Whip are the result.

    #WorkInProgress.

    The full track listing is as such: Lonesome Street, New World Towers, Go Out, Ice Cream Man, Thought I Was a Spaceman, I Broadcast, My Terracotta Heart, There are Too Many of Us, Ghost Ship, Pyongyang, Ong Ong, Mirror Ball.

    As the only artists to play Hyde Park four times, Blur will return to the historic London park for a headline show on Saturday, June 20, 2015 as part of Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park.
