Blur To Debut New Material Live On Twitter Monday 2nd July At 6.15pm

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 2nd July.

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 6th August.

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

August 1 Margate Winter Gardens

August 5/6 Wolverhampton Civic Hall

August 7 Plymouth Pavilions

Blur 21: The Box will be released on 30th July 2012. Twenty one years since the release of their debut album Leisure in 1991, the band's body of work has been compiled and gathered together into one box. Blur's seven studio albums are collected with over 5 Â 1/2 hours of previously unreleased material including 65 tracks, rarities, 3 DVDs, a collector's edition book and special limited edition Seymour 7 inch vinyl.
