Blur Biography

Since announcing their arrival with debut album Leisure in 1991, Blur went on to revolutionise the sound of English popular music with five successive UK #1 albums (Parklife, The Great Escape, Blur, 13 and Think Tank) helping to propel the band to mass popularity at home and abroad. One of the biggest British bands of the last two decades, Blur have released seven studio albums and collected ten NME Awards, six Q Awards, five BRIT Awards and an Ivor Novello Award, and played live to thousands of devoted fans across the globe.

16 years since their last album as a four-piece, last week saw the release of a brand new album from blur on Parlophone, titled The Magic Whip. 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. Last November Graham Coxon revisited the tracks and, drafting in blur’s early producer Stephen Street, he worked with the band on the material. Albarn then added lyrics and the 12 tracks of The Magic Whip are the result.

The critically acclaimed UK Number 1 album has peaked at No. 1 in the iTunes charts in 8 countries, in the Top 5 in an additional 20 countries and reached #15 in the US.
