New World Towers

From an unexpected breakthrough in Hong Kong, which became the first tentative steps towards the first album as a reunited band after 16 years, via a spectacular show at home in London, and back again to Hong Kong in an emotional reunion with the audience. 'New World Towers' portrays Blur's reunion and the inner life of the British band – and not least the special dynamics between the singer Damon Albarn and the guitarist Graham Coxon. At times a sorely tested, but ultimately indestructible and deeply musical friendship, which shines through on the new album 'The Magic Whip'. Blur is a band that has never been afraid of exploring new avenues, and in personal recordings and interviews with the four bandmates we see how a perfectly timed recording session unexpectedly gave rise to the new album, but also raised new questions about the band's future.
