Blur have unveiled the video for ‘Lonesome Street’, an opening track from new album ‘The Magic Whip’.
The video shows a dance teacher spiralling in a room, with nothing but a cheap boombox for company. Eventually, his cause picks up a few followers, outlandish dance moves being replicated by a cast of twenty.
‘Lonesome Street’’s stars are The San Francisco Chinese Line Dance, a group who specialise in “Chinese folk dance elements and beautiful music.” They’ve got behind-the-scenes shots of the video being filmed on their official site.
‘The Magic Whip’ is out 27th April on Parlophone - read DIY’s massive track-by-track review of the album here.
