Damon Albarn to Release Solo Album
Blur frontman and Gorillaz mastermind Damon Albarn will release his debut solo album some time in the near future, though a date has not yet been announced. Albarn recently wrapped up production on the album—which he describes as “sort of folk soul”—with XL Records’ Richard Russell. In addition, Albarn plans to support the release with a his first-ever solo tour, where he will play songs from throughout his career, including tunes by Blur and Gorillaz.
In related news, Albarn’s Chinese mythology-inspired opera Monkey: Journey to the West will come to New York City in July.
