Brit-poppers Blur took to the Internet today to premiere two new songs ahead of their Olympic performance next month.

The quartet published a link on Twitter leading fans to a live stream as they performed from a balcony at a secret location to unveil songs Under The Westway and The Puritan.

The band, who last performed together in 2009, have been working on new material as they prepare for a show in London's Hyde Park on August 12, which coincides with the Olympic closing ceremony.

Band members yesterday teased fans by posting images online as their equipment was set up, before finally starting the stream.

In a question and answer session via Twitter, the band confirmed the concert would be a career-spanning set "including the new tracks". Asked how it felt to be playing together again guitarist Graham Coxon said: "Like a silk smoking jacket."
