The Magic Whip: What to Expect

Most people associate Blur with "that Woo Hoo song". And after hearing about The Magic Whip, "Woo Hoo!" seems like the most appropriate reaction.

What is The Magic Whip, you ask? It’s Blur’s first album in 12 years! After years of leaving fans dangling, the band has finally announced the follow-up to 2003’s Think Tank. What makes this album even more special? It’s their first LP since 1999 to feature the band’s full original line-up. We don’t know about you, but we couldn’t be more thrilled!

That’s not all! Blur has also released the first single from the upcoming album. The track, titled Go Out, features an absurd video that is reminiscent of the iconic Coffee & TV video. It takes us through a woman’s adventures in the kitchen, as she whips up some ice-cream. But that’s not the weird part. The chorus is a karaoke-style sequence, which features a bouncy beach ball. Trippy, right?

If the cover and video remind you a lot of Asia, you’re not alone. The band actually recorded The Magic Whip in Hong Kong, when one of their gigs was cancelled. Most of the songs and the imagery for the era seem to be inspired by their exploits in the East as well. The song Pyongyang, which is drummer Dave Rowntree’s favorite, was inspired by Damon Albarn’s trip to North Korea!

With a peppy first single and a renewed kinship within the band, we’re sure that The Magic Whip will be another stellar addition to their discography. We don’t know if it’s going to be like 13 or Parklife, but we can’t wait to find out!
