Allow us to winnow through all the mixed Blur news we’ve been getting recently, just for you! First order of business: the band just dropped the two tracks they wrote for their upcoming performance at this year’s summer Olympics in London, “Under the Westway” (which we heard an acoustic version of a few months ago) and “The Puritan.” You can follow along with lyric videos for each song – we’re particularly enamored with the notated video for “Under the Westway,” in case you want to play along too – or just lie back and bask in the classic Britpop balladry of “Under the Westway” or tap your feet along to the upbeat electropop of “The Puritan.” Second order of business: you can buy these two songs on a 7” dropping on August 6th, or you can invest in the 21-disc box set the band are dropping on July 30. Third order of business: fan or not, you probably want to tune in to Blur’s Olympic performance, which is rumored to be their last show ever.

Rebel Heart pounds out the case for her legacy. But too many tracks obscure what could have been a solid comeback attempt.
