Introduction to Blur

Blur are an English rock/pop band formed in 1988 under the name of Seymour. They were one of the most significant bands of the 1990s in Britain and the important part of the so-called Britpop movement. Many remember Blur from the infamous Britpop battle against Oasis.

The band have released eight studio albums plus two compilations, which have sold around 15 million copies worldwide. Their breakthrough album Parklife was released in 1994 and featured the hits "Girls & Boys" and "Parklife". The band's other popular songs include "Song 2", "Beetlebum", "Country House" and "Coffee & TV".

However, Blur are far more than Britpop and the hits you may have heard. If you include their solo projects, it's hard to come by with a musical style they haven't covered. Their music is usually an inventive mixture of different styles. Every album the band have released is unique and musically different.

Guitarist Graham Coxon left Blur in 2002, but reunited with the band five years later. The reunion resulted in live tours, where they mainly played their most loved songs.

Blur's latest studio album The Magic Whip - the first in 12 years - was released in 2015. The band supported it with live shows around the world, including London's BST Hyde Park festival and New York's Madison Square Garden.

The band have just announced that they will perform a greatest hits set at London's Wembley Stadium on 8th and 9th July 2023. Also, Damon has expressed his interest to record a new Blur album: "Yes, I have some songs that I carry with me, not physically, metaphorically and I hope that next year we can do something. It would be very nice to make another album," he told Rolling Stone México in September 2021. "There's no new music in the works for the time being. But who knows?" Graham updated the situation to Guitar World in late 2022.
