Blur man plays acoustic set in Austin

Graham Coxon previews new album at SXSW
Graham Coxon played an acoustic set at South By Southwest yesterday (March 19), showcasing songs from his forthcoming new solo album, 'The Spinning Top'.

The Blur guitarist played in a tent in Bush Park in Austin at the Transgressive record label showcase.

The performance was the guitarist’s second of the festival – with one notable difference.

"I'm wearing different glasses today," Coxon told the crowd, "because yesterday the sound man said my pair were causing feedback."

Coxon's new material shows a softer direction than his recent high-octane solo work, being based mainly on guitar finger picking and Nick Drake-esque melodies.

Graham Coxon played:

'Sorrow's Army'
'This House'
'In The Morning'
'Brave The Storm'
'Dead Bees'
