Another reason to get excited for Record Store Day: Blur will honor the occasion by offering up their first new single in seven years. It will be released as a 7″ vinyl single, and 1,000 copies will be distribute to 150 independent UK record stores for the April 17 event. Damon Albarn told The Sun: “”We want independent record stores to continue — they’re an important part of our musical culture.” Sort of feel the same way about Blur. As mentioned, Bon Iver and The Thermals are two of many bands during Record Store Day releases Stateside.
