Blur to release single 'The Puritan' on July 2nd 2012

Blur is set to release a new song 'The Puritan' on July 2nd 2012, at exactly 7:15pm.

The Blur official facebook page updated it's cover photo to the lyrics of the new song 'The Puritan' - "The Flash of the blade is one less of getting paid" was the words on the neon-lighted cover of the band's page, which has been filled with cryptic, mysterious messages for the past few days.

A tweet stating the time and date - July 2nd 2012 at 7:15pm, followed the update in cover image.

blurpuritan, blur the puritan, the puritan, damon albarn puritan, flash of the blade is one less getting paid, hey puritan, new blur song, blur lyrics

Coincidentally, the Zane Lowe BBC Radio show also begins at 7:15pm - could this song be debuted on national radio when it's set for release? Zane Lowe has always had the first play on Blur and Damon Albarn's new material (think Gorillaz, the 2008-2009 tracks and more) and this definitely could be the reason for the unusual, specific time.

The single was debuted live a few days ago in a Damon Albarn Dr Dee concert. Listen to what Damon played to live audiences below. It definitely sounds like the old Blur, with traces of tunes from 'Modern Life is Rubbish' and the britpop-era tracks.

Let the countdown begin!
