Hear And Download Blur's New Record Store Day Single

It was a big weekend for Damon Albarn. Not only did his two-dimensional supergroup Gorillaz make a huge splash at Coachella, bringing out special guests from The Clash, De La Soul, and Little Dragon, to name a few — but his old band, Blur, also staged somewhat of a comeback. The blithe Britpop group hadn't released a song in seven years, but this month, the guys got back together to record a special single specifically for record store day.

One thousand 7-inch vinyls were released to independent record stores this past Saturday, and, even though they're probably all gone (or on eBay), the band is giving away the song, completely free and legal. You can get a high-quality download of the plodding, self-reflective "Fool's Day" at Blur's website.
