Blur Announce New Album ‘The Ballad Of Darren,’ Share Lead Single ‘The Narcissist’

Blur have announced that their new album, The Ballad of Darren, will be released on July 21.

The Ballad of Darren will be the band’s first album in eight years, a follow up to their 2015 LP The Magic Whip.

Blur also shared the album’s lead single, “The Narcissist”.

Speaking about the upcoming album, Blur frontman Damon Albarn said, “This is an aftershock record, reflection and comment on where we find ourselves now.”

“The older and madder we get, it becomes more essential that what we play is loaded with the right emotion and intention. Sometimes just a riff doesn’t do the job,” added Blur guitarist Graham Coxon.

The band, which went on hiatus for years, is set for a reunion this summer and performed a warm-up show at Colchester Arts Centre in England last Fridat.
