Track Of The Day: Damon Albarn - ''Everyday Robots'

Out of all the legends that emerged from the Britpop era, Damon Albarn stands out as the one who has found strength through development, and always continued to hop from style to style. The number of different groups and projects he has been involved in is easy to lose count of since there are that many, but finally we now have the first "proper" Albarn solo album coming. That's the first not counting the limited edition vinyl release 'Demo Crazy', a collection of musical sketches from 2003, or 2012's often brilliant soundtrack for the folk-opera 'Dr Dee'. The beautifully haunting title track from the upcoming 'Everyday Robots' demonstrates his great ability to combine and adapt various musical elements. A press release about the album says that the songs "invite the listener into Albarn’s world for a genuine 'one-to-one' and are the most soul-searching and autobiographical since his musical journey began." With a theme of 'nature versus technology', the LP features guests Brian Eno and Natasha Khan (Bat For Lashes), and is produced by XL's Richard Russell.
