It's a lunchtime tweet. Get it. Tweet. Treat. Ahhhhh, life.
The details below, but the important stuff -- 1:15pm our time on the East Coast, Blur will perform live two new songs, Hey Puritan and Under the Westway. You can download it after that or waiting for a vinyl copy on August 6th.
For the first time, Blur will debut new material live on their Twitter channel @blurofficial 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 said -“I wrote these songs for Hyde Park and I’m really excited about getting out there and playing them for people.”
Go to @blurofficial at 6:15pm to hear the first track. Immediately afterwards Blur will take part in an exclusive band interview. Simply tweet them @blurofficial or tag your questions #blur on the night to be included. At 7:15pm BST Blur will play the 2nd track.
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.
