Blur Reveal New Album 'The Magic Whip' Coming This Spring

Surprise! After 12 years of studio album silence and reports that a new album may never come, Blur revealed they're releasing a new album this spring!

The Magic Whip (cover art above) drops April 27 and will be the band's first album as a four-piece in 16 years. Yes, that means singer-guitarist Graham Coxon -- who sat out 2003's Think Tank -- has returned to the fold for the band's upcoming eighth. Coxon linked up with formerly estranged bandmate Damon Albarn in 2014 for a few U.K. shows.

Along with the news comes a lyric video for a brand new Blur song, "Go Out." Watch it below, and check out the track list beneath that.
