British band Blur is all over the news lately. The foursome will reunite for a performance at the 2012 Brit Awards 21 February, after singer/songwriter Damon Albarn appeared over the weekend with guitarist Graham Coxon at the War Child charity concert. There they debuted a new song, “Under the Westway”, a solid, if stripped down, composition. (See video below taken by a overzealous fan below.) 

There was also an announcement that Blur will play the Closing Ceremony Celebration Concert for the London Olympics this summer.  They will appear August 12 in Hyde Park with two other UK acts, ska band the Specials and some semblance of the iconic post-punk group New Order.
