Tracklisting & More Information

Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon, Alex James and Dave Rowntree are back with a brand new album.

Songs on The Magic Whip mention internet hotspots, satellite showers, industrial light and glass arcades. Initially conceived in Hong Kong, during downtime following a cancelled show in Japan, the band spent five days laying down ideas.

It wasn't until Graham Coxon reprised these sessions and presented them to long-time producer Stephen Street, who went on to develop them with the guitarist, that they realised they might have material worthy of a new album.

The Magic Whip is Blur's surprise reunion record - the biggest surprise of which is how effortlessly it maintains the band's essence, while pushing it's sound into uncharted territory. With a few exceptions - the playful Ong Ong, the 1994 time warp Lonesome Street - the album is a moody affair, capturing the bristling tension of later Blur albums. But instead of the tension being directed within the band, it's at the world at large. New World Towers, My Terracotta Heart, Pyongyang; these are all songs searching for something but not really knowing where to look.
