Blur, 'Fool's Day'
The first new Blur song in eight years is now a free download on their official site (and streaming over at Twenty Four Bit). Haven't heard too much on what other Blurheads think yet but personally I think it's quite excellent and that's all that really matters.
Musically it sounds like Blur. No surprises, which is good as when a group of lads get the ol' band back together to make another song after it's been a bit sometimes there is trouble recapturing the magic and things can turn south.
Lyrically I think it can be taken pretty literally, with Damon describing one of the day's spent in the studio making 'Fool's Day'. If that's the case let's hope when he sings 'We just can't let go' he's hinting at something.
And by 'something' I mean playing a show in Los Angeles.
