The Magic Whip
The Magic Whip the new album from Brit Pop legends Blur is scheduled for release on 27th April 2015 and is Blur’s first album in 16 years as a four-piece. 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.
