Blur Compile Fan-Shot Footage in ‘I Broadcast’ Video
Blur have unveiled a new and quite literal video for their latest The Magic Whip single, “I Broadcast,” and it compiles fan-shot footage inspired by the Britpop outfit’s most recent outing. Check it out above.
Blur made an open call for fans to submit their The Magic Whip-influenced home videos, which the Damon Albarn-led band later aired during their performance of “I Broadcast” at their Hyde Park concert in London earlier this summer. The footage has now reemerged in the “I Broadcast” music video, which splices together the clips of fan performances, Blur onstage and several allusions to the band’s catalog (The Magic Whip’s recurring ice cream cone and yellow smiley face as well as the “Coffee and TV” video's milk carton all make appearances).
Coming up, Blur have a few South American tour dates and a couple of concerts in Mexico. Then, they are scheduled to play a pair of U.S. shows at the Hollywood Bowl in L.A. on Oct. 20 and Madison Square Garden in New York City on Oct. 23. Get more information at the band’s website.
