Blur: Parklive to be Released as Digital Album

Blur’s recent performance at Hyde Park to mark the closing of the Olympic Games is being made available in a 4CD+DVD deluxe edition beginning December 4th from Virgin Records (December 3rd internationally from Parlophone).

Titled Parklive, the deluxe edition includes the entire show, with extras, presented in audio over two CDs with a DVD of the 12-camera shoot directed by Mathew Amos.

Also included is an exclusive CD, ‘Blur – Live At The 100 Club,’ recorded at the London venue in August, and an additional CD of live tracks recorded during the summer this year, including “Under The Westway” and “The Puritan” performed live on Twitter from a London rooftop, and recordings from the band’s Wolverhampton warm-up show and BBC Radio Maida Vale sessions.

The discs are housed in a 60-page hardback book containing exclusive photographs from both Hyde Park and the 100 Club. The deluxe edition is available from and from music retailers.

Blur has partnered with Abbey Road Live Here Now to deliver the concert audio to fans.  The Hyde Park show, part of the closing ceremony celebrations for the 2012 London Olympics, will also be available in Parklive DVD, 2CD, and digital album configurations starting December 4th.
