Released: April 2003
Their first release for three years – and their first without Graham Coxon – ‘Out Of Time’ is Blur at their introspective finest. While there were only three of them, they enlisted the help of numerous musicians from Marrakech on cello, violin, oud and the like, and nicked a sample from Doctor Who for the opening noise. The track came with an anti-war video and was their first to not feature the band in any way. Interestingly, it only made number 16 in our Tracks Of The Year list in 2003, which shows how time – and of course its live airings this summer – have bedded it into our consciousness.
