Blur - Blur's Damon Albarn And Graham Coxon Preview New Track

Ahead of their performance at the Brits tomorrow, Blur 's Damon Albarn and Graham Coxon debuted a new song last night at charity War Child's charity show in London's O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire, reports the Nme. Fan footage has spread online since it was first posted on Youtube this morning, the song titled 'Under The Westway,' and it shows just Albarn and Coxon, the former sitting behind a piano and the latter stage centre playing acoustic guitar; with a vibe similar to 'Battery In Your Leg' from Blur's last album 'Think Tank,' it resonates on happier tones than that track, though definitely working at the mellower end of the band's spectrum.
The new first track that's been heard from the four-piece since 2010's 'Fools Day' - which was released for Record Store Day in April of 2010 - it's done nothing to harm the anticipation building momentum as Albarn, Coxon, along with bassist Alex James and drummer Dave Rowntree accept the Brit for Outstanding Contribution to British Music tomorrow night. For Blur enthusiasts too there hinted at the promise the band might not stick to the greatest hits script when playing their short set tomorrow night, with the set list also compromising of 'He Thought Of Cars,' an album track from 1995's 'The Great Escape' and 'Strange News From Another Star' which appeared on their self-titled 1997 effort.
Blur's last comeback came in 2009 when they reformed after a six year hiatus to play Glastonbury and T In The Park among others; it was thought that they might then go away again, but rumours surrounding them returning have always persisted and it looks as though 2012 might be the year that they once again make good on that.
