Up until this week, Damon Albarn had only shared live renditions of “Lonely Press Play”, one of the new songs off his forthcoming solo debut, Everyday Robots. He first debuted the track at the Sundance Film Festival last month, then performed it as part of an in-studio session for BBC Radio 2. Now, he’s finally let loose its studio version along with its official music video.
Pristine, yet still so poignant, the LP version of “Lonely Press Play” is paired up with equally moving footage of Albarn’s lonesome global travels. From empty highways and secluded dirt roads to small villages and bustling cities, the clip crisply captures the many aches of isolation. Check it out below.
