Blur have posted a video for their new track Under 'The Westway' today (July 6) on their Facebook page. Scroll down below to watch the band recording it in the studio.

The Colchester four-piece recently broadcast their two new songs, 'Under The Westway' and 'The Puritan' from a secret UK location via a live video stream performance on Twitter.

The video for 'Under The Westway', which was posted on Blur's Facebook page earlier today features the band recording their new track in the studio where cameras were left to roll.

Blur will embark on an intimate UK tour this August. The Britpop icons will play four shows, beginning at Margate Winter Gardens on August 1. They will then play two shows at Wolverhampton Civic Hall on August 5 and 6, before finishing off at Plymouth Pavilions on August 7.

The shows will act as a warm-up for the band's huge outdoor gig at London's Hyde Park on August 12, which sees Blur topping a bill that also includes New Order and The Specials. The gig has been put on to coincide with the closing ceremony of the Olympic games. Blur are also scheduled to headline Sweden's Way Out West festival in August.

Blur will also release a career-spanning boxset on July 30. Titled '21', the collection includes the band's seven studio albums as well as over five hours of previously unreleased material including 65 tracks, rarities, three DVDs, a collector's edition book and special limited edition Seymour seven-inch vinyl.
