OBI strips are little paper things that go on Japanese LP and CD releases.
They help people identify what they're buying by displaying information in kanji. Here's an example.

So since this release has the title in Chinese they're printing it with an English language OBI.

Blur have always had great opening tracks. I really enjoy Stereotypes, but I love She's so high, expecially after 2009. My least favourite opener is Tender and I can totally live without it, except live of course! :D

1. Beetlebum
2. For Tomorrow
3. Girls and boys
4. She's so high
5. Ambulance
6. Stereotypes
7. Tender

I assume this means Lonesome Street will be the next "single" or pre-ordered track that we can listen to?
Now they also list the length of "There Are Too Many Of Us":

I believe we'll get lyric(?) videos for those tracks soon...

I think Stereotypes could only be an opening song. I think it would sound weird anywhere else on the album. It kicks it off with a bang, but half way into it, I'm over it wanting for CH to start.

Got to be on the cards, a Mr OK t-shirt at Hyde Park. Definitely one for the collection.
