Blur is back with two new tunes...

This past week, Blur premiered two new songs, “Under the Westway” and “The Puritan”, via a London rooftop performance. You can catch both over at the band’s website. They will be officially released as digital singles on 6 August, but you can watch the live performances all you want until then. Blur has also just released a new video of a live studio performance of “Under the Westway”.
