The Ballad of Darren blu-ray audio with Dolby Atmos Mix
New album • Blu-ray Audio (with Atmos Mix & hi-res stereo) • Release date: 21 July 2023
A Dolby Atmos Mix of The Ballad of Darren, Blur's first album in over eight years, is being released on blu-ray audio and you have an early opportunity to secure your copy via the SDE shop.
Produced by James Ford and recorded at Studio 13, London and Devon, The Ballad of Darren is the band’s ninth studio album, their first since the chart-topping The Magic Whip in 2015, with artwork featuring an image by British photographer Martin Parr.
The blu-ray audio (no video content) will features the Atmos Mix and a 96/24 hi-res stereo version of The Ballad of Darren. Neither are available physically anywhere else! Both mixes are the 10-track version of the album, which features the first single The Narcissist.
To enjoy the spatial audio you'll need a blu-ray player connected to an Atmos-compatible soundbar or a Cinema-style amplifier/receiver with Atmos or 5.1 capability, rigged up to a multi-speaker set-up. If you currently have a 5.1 set-up the Atmos Mix will 'fold down' to 5.1.
The Ballad of Darren will be released on 21 July 2023 via Parlophone. We ship internationally.
