Blur Unveil New Song, ‘There Are Too Many of Us’
Blur are clearly back in full force. After releasing "Go Out" last month, the Britpop outfit have just dropped a new song, "There Are Too Many of Us," from their upcoming reunion album, The Magic Whip. Check it out above.
Starting off with a militaristic rhythm that's carried throughout the track, frontman Damon Albarn stands still at the mic during the performance and sings nonchalantly into the microphone. Most of the video shows the band playing the song in a cramped studio space with quick clips of different angles of the members' instruments and faces. "There Are Too Many of Us" delves into the issues of overpopulation, and as depressing as that sounds, the melody gives even more of that heavy forlorn feeling.
The Magic Whip is Blur's first album in 12 years and is set for release April 28 on all formats including a double-disc vinyl set. In the meantime, London fans will be getting a special show tonight (March 20) as Blur will be play the new LP in its entirety live in a secret spot. "Tonight is the night… Blur will play their new album, The Magic Whip, in full, live and for the first time, at a secret West London location," the band announced on social media. For anyone who can't make it to London tonight or weren't lucky enough to get a ticket, don't worry. The show will be filmed and aired via Beats By Dre on March 25.
