Watch Blur Play Their New Song ‘There Are Too Many of Us’
It's the second single from 'The Magic Whip,' their first album in 12 years
Blur have shared the second song from their upcoming eighth album, The Magic Whip — the Britpop band’s first in 12 years. Revealed with a video showing them playing in what appears to be a practice space, “There are Too Many of Us” is a great, if a little morose, song about overpopulation. The track has a somewhat defeatist, march-like feel at times, and it’s less exuberant than the first single, “Go Out.” Give it a listen above. The Magic Whip is set for an April 28 release date, but the band is reportedly playing the whole album at a secret show somewhere in West London tonight.
