Blur 13 on 180g 2LP + MP3 Coupon
To celebrate the 21st Anniversary of their debut release, Blur’s sixth album 13 has now been expanded across two discs, cut on heavyweight 180g audiophile vinyl and housed in a replica of the original sleeve artwork.
Marking their ten years together as a band, 1999's 13 is the sound of Blur becoming, according to Damon Albarn, “completely free.” The album was created from lengthy improvisations around song structures, recorded and painstakingly edited by producer William Orbit.
Lyrically, the songs are rooted in personal and emotional changes, most notably on two of the album's singles, “Tender” and the heartbreaking “No Distance Left To Run.” The album also sees songwriting contributions by guitarist Graham Coxon who takes lead vocal duties on "Coffee & TV."
