Country House è il primo singolo rilasciato, nel 1995, dal quarto album studio dei Blur, The Great Escape. Nel Regno Unito raggiunse il primo posto delle classifiche, e fu uno dei momenti chiave in cui la stampa cominciava a descrivere la faida del brit-pop con gli Oasis, che nel frattempo uscivano con “Roll With” It arrivando al secondo posto anche se poi avrebbero vinto la sfida degli album con (What’s The Story) Morning Glory?
La casa in campagna del titolo fa riferimento a quella che aveva acquistato il manager del gruppo, Dave Balfe.
