LIVE ON TWITTER MONDAY JULY 2 AT 6:15 BST

Blur
For the first time, Blur will debut new material live on Twitter when they perform two new songs via a worldwide live video stream at 6:15pm BST on Monday July 2.

Filmed and streamed completely live from a secret UK location, the two new songs - which the band have never publicly performed - are "Under The Westway" and "The Puritan", written for the upcoming sold-out Hyde Park concert.

Damon Albarn said -"I wrote these songs for Hyde Park and I'm really excited about getting out there and playing them for people."

Tony Wang, UK General Manager, Twitter added -"People all over the world are connecting with the musicians they love on Twitter. Blur is taking this idea even further by debuting two new songs through a live stream and having a direct conversation with their fans on the platform. They know what their fans want and are setting the pace for the future of artist engagement online."

Go to @blurofficial at 6:15pm to hear the first track and an exclusive band interview, followed by the second track at 7:15pm BST.

Following the live stream, both songs will be available to download. A limited edition double-A 7-inch single will be released by Parlophone on August 6.

Watch Alex James below for more information.

Blur will perform a handful of warm up dates prior to the Hyde Park concert on August 12. The dates are:

  • August 1 Margate Winter Gardens
  • August 5/6 Wolverhampton Civic Hall
  • August 7 Plymouth Pavilions
