Blur unveil footage of 'Under The Westway' from summer Hyde Park concert – watch
Clip will feature on a live DVD of the band's Olympic Hyde Park show
The clip is taken from the band's forthcoming 'Parklife' five-disc CD and DVD, which is out on December 3. The entire audio from the Olympic Games closing gig will feature on two CDs, while a DVD of the concert – which was shot on 12 cameras – will also be included.
The other two CDs will comprise 'Blur – Live At The 100 Club' which was recorded at their special intimate gig in August and there will be another disc of live songs recorded over the summer, including the rooftop debuts of 'Under The Westway' and 'The Puritan', as well as songs taken from Blur's warm-up show in Wolverhampton and their BBC Radio Maida Vale session.
Meanwhile, frontman Damon Albarn has created an 'audio collage' to be simultaneously broadcast on every BBC radio station in the UK and worldwide to mark 90 years of radio later today (November 14). The simulcast Radio Reunited will be broadcast at 5.33pm, marking exactly 90 years since the first ever BBC broadcast.
It consists of a three-minute transmission based on recorded messages submitted by listeners around the world on the theme of the future. An estimated 60 BBC radio stations will choose one message each, which will then be mixed together and set to a track specially composed by the Blur frontman.
