Blur shared the second official leak from their first album in 12 years today, a string-steeped, synth-glazed meditation on how doomed earth is due to its increasingly depleted resources and limited real estate. “There Are Too Many of Us” will be performed with the rest of The Magic Whip tonight at a secret West London spot and streamed in full via youtube.com/beatsbydre next Wednesday at 8 p.m. GMT/PST. Check out the record’s slightly more upbeat lead single (“Go Out”) below:
‘The Magic Whip’ is due out April 27th through Parlophone. Pre-order it via iTunes here.
