Damon Albarn Releases Title Track from Solo Album “Everyday Robots”

Solo album scheduled for April 29 release

British singer-songwriter Damon Albarn already sports quite a diverse resume, with such entries as frontman for rock band Blur, co-founder of cartoon alt-hip-hop act Gorillaz, part of supergroup The Good, the Bad & the Queen, and even occasional film score composer. Now, it appears, he’s about to add “solo artist” to the list.

Albarn has kept the music news media quite busy over the past few days, first previewing four new songs during his Sunday evening set at Sundance, then on Monday officially announcing his upcoming solo album Everyday Robots, for which he told NME he had written 60 songs as source material. Today, he officially released the title track from the album—an esoteric yet captivating tune driven by a quirky violin loop, lamenting the negative side effects of technology on humanity. Let it never be said this man lacks for creative ideas.

Take a listen to “Everyday Robots and see what you think.” The album is scheduled for release April 29 on Warner Bros. Records.

About the Author

on MUSIC IS MY OXYGEN WEEKLY.

Tim Ferrar's interest in pop and rock started as a child, listening to Top-40 radio for hours on end while playing air guitar in his bedroom. Eventually air guitar led to electric guitar, and Tim began playing in bands and writing his own songs. With an admitted weakness for "a great hook or a great guitar riff," Tim's musical tastes are broad and varied, ranging from Michael Jackson and Lady Gaga on the pop side to Bon Jovi and Foo Fighters on the rock side- making him the ideal guy to cover our Rock and Pop categories. By day, Tim is a mild-mannered accountant in Chicago. By night, he rocks out on electric guitar in a cover band in various clubs around town- much to the surprise of some of his clients.
