Yesterday Blur released a limited 7 inch single for Record Store Day. "Fool's Day" is a new song--it was recorded in early April. Yesterday the 7 inch sold out quickly, and now the band wants to give YOU a copy (or at least a mp3) for FREE. Here's the statement the band posted on their site:

Blur’s new song Fool’s Day recorded especially for Record Store Day has sold out on limited edition 7 inch vinyl record. Fool’s Day was available across the UK at independent music retailers participating in Record Store Day. 1000 7 inch vinyl copies were pressed.

Blur’s manager Chris Morrison has said it is important that the song was made available to fans legally. "To avoid fans having to illegally obtain an inferior copy of this track from pirate sites – we have made it freely available through the band’s website".
