The former Oasis frontman has claimed that he considers the new single by Blur to be the best he's heard in 2015 so far.

On Monday (4 May), he tweeted:

Meanwhile, in other Blur news, the band topped the UK album charts with their new release, The Magic Whip this week. Albarn, Coxon, James and Rowntree were the only new entry in the Top 20 and knocked pop diva Taylor Swift from the Number 1 spot.
