Blur “Fools Day”
Blur have been on the sidelines since calling it quits after 2003’s Think Tank, but that all changed for the worldwide holiday known as Record Store Day 2010. They recorded a song for a limited edition 7″ called “Fools Day” and decided to be proactive and also releaseit legally on their website for everyone outside of the 1,000 people who got physical copies. All you have to do is trade them your name and email and you will get the song. The track is a melancholy, mid tempo track that finds the Damon Albarn not reaching too far from his current side project Gorillaz for the laid back pop song the group created. While it is no “Charmless Man,” it is still nice to hear one of my favorite Brit-Pop bands back on the scene.
