Blur Announces Career-Retrospective Box Set
On the heels of news that Blur is reportedly no more, the band has announced Blur 21, a massive career-retrospective box set.
The box set will include all seven of the band's studio albums, plus four rarities discs, three DVDs, a collectible 7" of track "Superman," and a book featuring interviews with each of the band members. Each of the seven studio albums have been expanded to a two-disc deluxe edition.
Last week, in an interview with The Guardian, Blur frontman Damon Albarn mentioned that the future of Blur, along with his other band Gorillaz, may not extend past this year. "Well, one thing I've learned, and I'm sure you're exactly the same, is that everything I think I've got totally sorted out, and I know exactly what's going to happen - it never works out that way..."
The group will be featured at the huge Olympics' closing show at London's Hyde Park on August 12, where they will play their new single, "Under the Westway."
