Last week, we got the details on Damon Albarn’s solo debut LP, Everyday Robots, and today, the album’s first single is revealed, along with a video. The title track from Everyday Robots feels like a neat sorta-summation of Damon’s career: I can hear some post-Parklife Blur in here, some of Gorillaz’ gauzier side, a prominent string section that could have been on Dr. Dee or Monkey, some African instrumentation that might have been sourced while recording Mali Music or during any Honest Jon’s discovery expedition. It’s a lilting, creaky, beautiful track very much worthy of its author’s reputation, and very much worth your time. I have high hopes for this one. Check it out.
