Blur released their first song in over seven years today in the UK in celebration of Record Store Day, though only 1,000 limited 7” physical copies hit shelves. Inevitably, Graham Coxon, Damon Albarn, and company’s new tune, “Fool’s Day,” sprung an interweb leak, which we opted not to share in the spirit of, um, Record Store Day. Good news, though: Blur are now offering a free download of this first recording since Think Tank in either 320kbps MP3 format or as an uncompressed WAV file.

“To avoid fans having to illegally obtain an inferior copy of this track from pirate sites – we have made it freely available through the band’s website,” said Blur’s manager. Their announcement later states that the song was recorded in London, England only a few weeks ago in early April (as the title suggests).
