Fool’s Day a new song from Blur will be released on a limited edition one-sided 7 inch vinyl single on April 17th, 2010 through Parlophone Records.
Recorded in London earlier this month, Fool’s Day is the first song 4 members of Blur have recorded together since Battery In Your Leg from the album Think Tank (2003).
Fool’s Day is available in the UK at independent music retailers participating in Record Shop Day. 1000 copies have been pressed and will be available as independent record shops around the UK open their doors on Saturday morning.
“We want independent record stores to continue – they’re an important part of our musical culture. Music is a simple way for Blur to show our support and we hope people like it”. Damon Albarn
The aim of Record Shop Day is to highlight the continuing contribution of indie stores to music. “This release just shows how big Record Shop Day has become and I for one can’t wait to be in the thick of the action come Saturday morning” Spencer Hickman on behalf of Record Shop Day.
Blur are Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon, Alex James and Dave Rowntree.
