Gorillaz's latest record, Plastic Beach, has spent a lot of time in my car stereo this year, but I'm super excited to see Damon Albarn returning to his roots. On Record Store Day, Albarn, Graham Coxon, Alex James, and Dave Rowntree released a limited-edition (1,000 copies, to be exact, only in the UK) 7" of "Fool's Day," the first Blur Single in seven years. Albarn recently told the UKSun,
We want independent record stores to continue - they're an important part of our musical culture. Music is a simple way for Blur to show our support and we hope people like it.
Since none of us got a copy, click here to listen to a high-quality version of the song on YouTube. "Fool's Day" is the essence of Britpop - lo-fi, easygoing, and highly melodic. Hope this means a new record could be coming.
