Rumor Mill: Blur to release new single for Record Store Day

Posted April 9th, 2010 by eric

My wallet is certainly happy that I have a conflict with attending Record Store Day on April 17th, but now that a new Blur single might be in the mix I could be in trouble. Granted, the source is The Sun, so take this with the appropriate amount of salt, but Blur has reportedly regrouped and recorded a new single to be released on 7″ format for Record Store Day. Quoth Blur singer Damon Albarn: “We want independent record stores to continue – they’re an important part of our musical culture.” Only 1000 copies will be available and only in record shops in England. With only 1000 copies being pressed, the ones that end up on eBay will not be cheap. So that’s from whence my wallet pain may stem. But on the bright side, Blur might be releasing its first new single with Graham Coxon in over a decade.
