Britpop legends Blur have announced plans to issue an elaborate box set collecting their entire discography along with over five hours of previously unreleased material on July 30th. The band, who are set to play what could be their final concert at the closing ceremonies of the Summer Olympics in London this summer, will release Blur 21, a 21-disc box featuring expanded versions of all seven of their studio albums, four discs of rarities, three DVDs featuring previously unseen footage, a special 7-inch single and a book.
In addition to the CD box set, the expanded editions of Blur's albums will be sold individually as double-disc packages. The albums will also be reissued on vinyl without bonus tracks, and another box collecting the seven LPs will also hit stores. The full track listing for the Blur 21 box set can be seen on the Blur website, and you can watch a trailer for the reissues below.
