Damon Albarn previews Under the Westway for the second time

Some say it's like something out of Damon Albarn's solo album The Good, The Bad and The Queen; some say it's a melancholic ballad; some live it, some hate it, some fans even claim it's the ultimate clue to what any new Blur material (in the future) may sound like.

Ladies and gentlemen, Damon Albarn previewed the new Blur song 'Under the Westway' on the BBC Front Row show on the 7th May 2012. This is the second time the song has been played - the first was during the War Child live gig earlier this year, where BlurBalls exclusively filmed the touching, two-man performance.

Damon was interviewed at his studio and he previewed the new Blur track. This song is rumoured to be included in the band's Blur21 massive box set as the mysterious track. The box set will include remasters of all their catalogue and many exclusive, unreleased tracks.

The track seems very promising, and of course, melancholic...just in time for Blur's massive Hyde Park gig this summer. But can it compare with the band's earlier track 'Fools Day' ? Is this too Beatles-esque? Or is it a new direction for a future Blur?

Guess fans will have to wait and see. The box set will be released on July 2012.
