Damon Albarn‘s debut solo album Everyday Robots was announced just three days ago, but already we’ve heard two songs from it. First came the title track/lead single; it’s a haunting listen, built out of the same electro-folk elements heard on many of Albarn’s Gorillaz-era tracks. “Lonely Press Play”, which comes courtesy of a fan who filmed Albarn’s recent solo set at Sundance, is equally stunning, but for different reasons. It begins as a bare-bones acoustic song, but is soon filled out with piano and a string section. Beautiful doesn’t even begin to describe it, and that’s just based on an average YouTube recording. I can’t wait to see hear it, and the rest of the record for that matter, when it hits stores April 29th via Warner Bros. Records.
