Blur have today released the
trailer (see below) for their upcoming documentary film called New
World Towers. Directed by
Sam Wrench, the
93-minute documentary is about the making process of The Magic Whip
and also features footage from the last summer's gigs in
London's Hyde Park and Hong Kong.
The documentary is scheduled
to be screened in selected UK cinemas (Picturehouse, Odeon,
Cineworld and Vue) on 2nd December 2015. An
international release and possible physical formats will be
announced at the later date.
The official description for
New World Towers is:
"Featuring stunning live footage
alongside intimate moments following the band in the studio,
Blur's new documentary film New World Towers charts the iconic
British band's journey in recent years. From an unexpected
break in Hong Kong which sowed the seeds for their first album
as a four piece in 16 years, to a glorious home coming show in
London's Hyde Park and, finally, the emotional reunion with
their Hong Kong audience, this isn't just a chance to witness
the band at the height of their powers, but also an
opportunity to see them at their most raw and candid."
