Details of Damon Albarn’s long-awaited debut solo album have been revealed on Warner Music’s webstore. Entitled Everyday Robots, the 12-track effort will see release on April 29th. The album’s title track also serves as the lead single and is due out on March 3rd digitally and on 7-inch vinyl.

The album itself is available in a variety of configurations, including as an HD digital album and as a deluxe CD/DVD package featuring live performance footage from Fox studios in Los Angeles.

In an interview Rolling Stone late last year, Albarn described the album as a “sort of folk soul” that he made alongside longtime collaborator and XL Recordings head Richard Russell. “Richard does the rhythmic side, and I do everything else,” Albarn explained.

Update: According to Albarn’s Facebook page, the album also features Brian Eno and Bat For Lashes’ Natasha Khan are also featured on the album. It’s described as “his most soul-searching and autobiographical yet” and “explores nature versus technology.”
