Blur's Dave Rowntree delivers debut single 'London Bridge'

Having been established as one of the country's all-time great drummers, Blur's Dave Rowntree is now embarking on a new solo project by delivering his debut single.

The new track 'London Bridge' was produced by Leo Abrahams (Wild Beasts/Brian Eno/Ghostpoet), and comes accompanied by a brilliant new video, directed by Cauboyz.

Speaking about the new offering, he said, “When I was in my early 20s, in Colchester, I would start to see the number 126 everywhere. I lived at a house that was 126, I’d get a bus that was 126. It felt to me that the universe was trying to alert my attention to 126 for some reason, even though the rational part of me knew that that was bollocks.

“So, ‘London Bridge’ was one of those,” he adds. “Things just started happening when I was near London Bridge, or going past on the bus, or on the tube going underneath London Bridge. I would just notice events occurring, and it was slightly unsettling.

“I had to confront my London Bridge demons and that’s what the song is about.”
