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 (from 2009 to 2014), where they mainly played their most loved songs.

Blur's latest studio album The Magic Whip - the first in 12 years - was released in April 2015. The band supported the album with gigs around the world including the US shows at the Madison Square Garden and Hollywood Bowl. As of April 2017, the promotion for The Magic Whip is over and the band have unfortunately no plans for the future. The lead singer Damon Albarn is currently busy with his other projects including Gorillaz.
