Blur to release exclusive CD of Under The Westway

Members of the official Blur forum have been petitioning for nearly a week for the band to release their new single via an official CD. After nearly five pages of posts filled with fans' excitement and desire for a potential release, the wish has finally been granted.

Blur and their management has announced that 'Under the Westway' and 'The Puritan' will be released in a CD format for all to buy. The CD will be limited to 5000 copies worldwide and is a Blur store exclusive product.

This new CD will be released on 6th August 2012, in time for the summer Hyde Park live gigs where Blur is leading the London Olympics closing ceremony. Blur released the two new tracks on July 2nd 2012, after performing them live on top of their West London studio, complete with a twitter live video stream. The 7 inch vinyl can also be purchased via the official store.
