Damon Albarn set to release solo album
Blur frontman goes alone
The talented Damon Albarn's latest musical venture is due for release on April 28. The album is co-produced by XL Recordings boss Richard Russell, who has worked with Albarn before on American soul-singer Bobby Womack's album The Bravest Man in the Universe.
Albarn – who is also the vocalist and songwriter of virtual band Gorillaz, showed his excitement about XL's involvement saying, "Richard does the rhythmic side and I do everything else. Making a solo record can be such a disaster, so I thought if we're going to make a record with my name on it, I should get someone to really produce it; take that responsibility away from myself."
The album also includes guests features by Natasha Khan (Bat For Lashes) and Brian Eno.
