Damon Albarn 2014

We first heard “Lonely Press Play” when Damon Albarn debuted the track at Sundance with nothing but an acoustic guitar and a string section. Today, BBC Radio 2’s Dermot O’Leary did a great interview with Albarn, on which he delivered an even sparser take on the song than the small-room live version that debuted last month, doing away altogether with the string section. I’m not saying the song needs more than an acoustic guitar, though: This thing is totally beautiful. Damon also did a devastating acoustic cover of Terry Jacks’ “Seasons In The Sun” during the broadcast. Listen to both tracks below and the full interview here.

  1. This is good, can’t wait to hear a (possibly) fleshed out studio version.
