blur 21 box set: hear rare track 'superman'

 

Britpop legends Blur turn 21 this year, and it appears that’s as old as they’re ever going to be. Recently, Damon Albarn has strongly hinted that the band isn’t long for this world — dashing hopes of a new Blur album and turning this summer’s Hyde Park Olympic-closing gig into a farewell show.

To soften the blow, the band have announced Blur 21, a career-spanning box set that features expanded editions of all seven albums, two live DVDs, a DVD of “video rarities,” a hard-bound book, and four exclusive discs with more than 3½ hours of previously unreleased material “selected from the Blur vault and band member’s own archives.”

Also included, a 7″ single of the previously unreleased track “Superman” recorded in December 1989 at The Square in Harlow, Essex. It’s such an early track in fact, the band was known as Seymour at the time. Listen below or watch a video of the performance here.

All seven albums will also be re-released on vinyl, both individually and together in a “sturdy” hard case. To get you in the nostalgic mood, here’s the band’s life flashing before your eyes in the form of the Blur 21 trailer:
