Damon Albarn

Blur/Gorillaz frontman Damon Albarn has been talking about releasing a solo album for a while now, and it's finally officially been announced. Damon posted to his Facebook page...

Damon's new and first solo studio album titled Everyday Robots is out 28th April. It's his most soul-searching and autobiographical yet, explores nature versus technology and features guests Brian Eno and Natasha Khan (Bat For Lashes), and is produced by XL's Richard Russell.
The video for the title track will be released today so stay tuned for that. (UPDATE: Watch it HERE.) That's the album artwork above and you can check out the tracklist below.

Damon will be in NYC this June to play Governors Ball.

^One-hit wonder bands? A quick check of wikipedia shows 7 platinum albums between Blur and Gorillaz (some up to 3-5x multiplatinum).

Most people only know Blur for "Woo hoo" and Gorillaz (maybe) for "Clint Eastwood." 2 one-hit wonder bands.

I only know Pixies for "Where is My Mind", from Fight Club actually. I don't care about the rest of their catalogue. They are just one-hit wonders anyway.

Most people? I live in the US not England, and I am aware of a larger DA catalog. More than "Woo Hoo" (Song 2) and "Clint Eastwood" try Parklife and Demon Days.

"11:15 just moved here from just outside of Tucson, AZ."

I am from PHX and as I stated before about the 11:15 individual (if it is the same person), try Parklife and Demon Days. He has a much larger catalog.

Just a side note, good music comes out of the desert. Try QOTSA.

The whole thing is: i don't want to hear any more of this dude's music. Those two songs are more than enough in my life. Thanks for your concern, though.

"british sausage AKA bangers and mash"

If this is sausage, then the only thing that isn't is waify limp-wrist band The Pains of Being Pure At Heart. If it ain't "sausage", it's eunuch!

If you're going to make dumb one-hit wonder claims, at least get it right. "Feels Good, Inc." was a much bigger song than "Clint Eastwood."
