Blur drummer Dave Rowntree has premiered another new song off his upcoming debut solo album, Radio Songs.

The track is titled “HK” and was written while he was on tour with Blur in Hong Kong.

“I fell in love with the city before the plane had even landed — a new record for me,” Rowntree says. “The track was inspired by Hong Kong’s beauty, claustrophobia, and sense of dark foreboding, set against the backdrop of a chaotic Chinese radio station.”

Blur’s most recent album, 2015’s The Magic Whip, was recorded partly in Hong Kong.

You can listen to “HK” now via digital outlets and watch its accompanying video streaming now on YouTube.

Radio Songs is due out January 20, 2023. It also includes the previously released tracks “London Bridge” and “Devil’s Island.”
