Fool’s Day is a new song from Blur and will be released on a limited edition one-sided 7 inch vinyl single  at 9am on  April 17th, 2010 through Parlophone Records.

Recorded in London earlier this month, Fool’s Day is the first song 4 members of Blur have recorded together since Battery In Your Leg from the album Think Tank (2003).

Fool’s Day is available in the UK at the above independent music retailers participating in Record Store Day. 1000 copies have been pressed and will be available as independent record shops around the UK open their doors on Saturday morning.

“We want independent record stores to continue – they’re an important part of our musical culture. Music is a simple way for Blur to show our support and we hope people like it” said  Damon Albarn.

The aim of Record Store Day is to highlight the continuing contribution of indie stores to music.

“This release just shows how big Record Store Day has become and I for one can’t wait to be in the thick of the action come Saturday morning” said Rough Trade’s Spencer Hickman  on behalf of Record Store Day.
