Introducing Blur’s Music Video for New Track “St. Charles Square”
Blur has recently released a captivating music video for their latest song titled “St. Charles Square.” This track serves as the second single from their upcoming album, “The Ballad of Darren,” set to be released on July 21 via Parlophone. You can enjoy the video below.
Damon Albarn, the lead vocalist, expressed that the forthcoming LP is an introspective reflection and commentary on our present circumstances. In press statements, he shared that the band had to convince him to base the album around their collective efforts as a four-piece band, rather than solely relying on guitarist Graham Coxon. Albarn admitted, “Most of the time, I work on my own. However, I do recognize the immense reward of everyone playing together, which is perhaps the greatest reward. It’s important to stay authentic. We have been playing together since we were young, so witnessing the incredible journey from our teenage years to nearly reaching our sixties is both peculiar and beautiful. It’s truly wonderful.”
Blur made a comeback announcement towards the end of last year, arranging a series of shows at Wembley Stadium and unveiling a lineup of global festival performances. Their initial reunion album, “The Magic Whip,” was released in 2015.
