Listen to Blur’s ‘My Terracotta Heart’ – Mellow But So Sad (Video)

Blur continues to release songs from their new album The Magic Whip. This week’s new Blur release is a track called ‘My Terracotta Heart‘ and, so far, I think I like this one the best.

My Terracotta Heart‘ is mellow, sweet and, although it has a deceptive happy beat, it’s actually incredibly sad.

As for the meaning of the song, here’s what Graham Coxon had to say about it:

“I knew it was going to be an incredibly sad song, which is why I put that crying guitar on there. What I didn’t know at the time was that the lyrics would turn out to be about Damon and I, our long friendship and the ups and downs we’ve had.”

Listen to it below. It’s so lovely. And, if you haven’t heard them already, also check out the band singing ‘Ong Ong‘ live on Jules Holland, the video for their ‘Lonesome Street, and the gloomy and sad ‘Too Many of Us‘.
