Last week, Blur released their first album in eight years, The Ballad of Darren. Today they’ve shared a pair of bonus tracks.

Following a triumphant return to form at their Wembley Stadium shows earlier this month, Blur released The Ballad of Darren is the band’s ninth studio album, their first in eight years since the chart-topping The Magic Whip in 2015.

A string of singles including "The Narcissist" and "St. Charles Square" preceded the release, and now they return with two bonus singles – “The Rabbi” and “The Swan".

To celebrate the album's release, Blur are performing a one-off livestream show at Eventim Apollo this evening (25 July) where they will play The Ballad of Darren in full.

They have also shared an interview with Wilco on Apple Music in which they discuss the making of the album.

The Ballad of Darren is out now. To watch the livestream performance at Eventim Apollo later today, visit
