Blur debut new song

Damon Albarn and Graham Coxon unleashed a new song onto the world.

The duo were performing at the War Child charity show in West London, playing He Thought Of Cars and Strange News From Another Star before introducing the new track as Under The Westway, an homage to the massive flyover situated right over Crossfire HQ. We love it, obviously.
