Everyday Robots - Damon Albarn

Song: Everyday Robots
Artist: Damon Albarn
Album: Everyday Robots

Blur frontman and head Gorillaz Damon Albarn is set to release his first solo album Everyday Robots this coming April.  The record has been produced by Richard Russell of XL recordings and has been described as a mix of folk, soul, and trip-hop, with Albarn stating the concept centered around "empty club music."  The album is preceded by the title and first track as initial single.

"Everyday Robots" is a sparse, odd little track with off-key percussion and a vibe that's equally calming as it is a bit eerie.  It's a bit of an odd choice for first single, especially when the teaser (see below) for the album capitalized on Albarn's entire successful pop career, making this first solo album a thing.

One of the more gifted and interesting singer-songwriters of our time, I look forward to what he cooks up.
