Stream Blur's new album 'The Magic Whip'

Blur's first album for 12 years, 'The Magic Whip', is now available to stream via iTunes.

The album, which is the bands eighth studio album, is released on 27th April, but the band have made it available to listen to now, a week prior to it's release. It is their first album since 2003's 'Think Tank'.

Work began on the album in 2013, when a cancelled show in Japan meant they had 5 days spare, but Damon Albarn has previously stated he was unsure if the work would ever be released. "There are about 15 songs...the annoying thing is, if I'd been able to write the lyrics there and then about being there, we'd have finished the record. But sometimes, if you can't do it all at once, it dissipates really and I don't know what I'd sing about now with that record. There's some great tunes on there, but it may just be one of those records that never comes out."
