Blur – “Under The Westway”
At a Brit Awards War Child benefit show last night in London, Blur co-leaders Damon Albarn and Graham Coxon got together to debut a brand-new Blur song called “Under The Westway,” with Coxon on acoustic guitar and Albarn on vocals and piano. It’s a drawn-out Bowie-style ballad that sounds, at least on first listen, like something special, even if Albarn does rhyme “Hallelujah” with “sing it to ya.” New Blur songs are rare things, and a new Blur song that sounds like this is a big deal indeed. Below, watch a fan-made video of the two performing the song and/or stream a live recording of it.
At the same show, the two also played the older Blur songs “He Thought Of Cars” and “Strange News From Another Star.”
