The absolutely iconic rock band, Blur dominated the Britpop scene in the nineties. Today they have returned to deliver an incredible new album The Ballad Of Darren. This is the group’s ninth studio album, and first official release in eight years. They teamed up with producer, James Ford in London in the spring of this year to carats ten fantastic tracks. The album was announced in May, followed by an epic show at Colchester Arts Centre. Blur then dropped an amazing new track, “The Narcissist“. Although Blur gained worldwide popularity for their famous grunge-rock track “Song 2“, dedicated fans know the band more for their surfy-pop sound across their full discography. This new album is a beautiful blend of everything Blur does best.
