Blur Release Fool’s Day As Free Download
For Record Store Day …
Monday, April 19, 2010 - 11:07
The band put out Fool’s Day as a limited edition 7” single to support Record Store Day on Saturday.
And after the vinyl sold out the group stuck the track on their website blur.co.uk. A message from their manager Chris Morrison said:
“To avoid fans having to illegally obtain an inferior copy of this track from pirate sites – we have made it freely available through the band’s website.”
Fool’s Day - recorded earlier this month- harks back to Blur’s Britpop classic Parklife in its themes.
The understated song features typically English lyrics from Damon Albarn referencing Woolworths, porridge, Ladbroke Grove and civil war.
It’s the first new track from the group since 2003, although currently there are no plans for them to record more.
Damon Albarn recently released the third Gorillaz album Plastic Beach and plays live shows in London with the group later this month.
