And one more gem from Mr Albarn – ‘Mr. Tembo’, which is a happy tribute to… an elephant. Yes, Mr. Tembo is an orphaned baby elephant that Albarn met during his recent travel to Tanzania. The elephant must have been a sweet thing as the song is definitely much more upbeat and joyous than anything else released off ‘Everyday Robots’ to date. Emotional, delightful story. Awesome!
After ‘ Lonely Press Play’ here’s the next track from the Damon Albarn’s forthcoming solo album ‘Everyday Robots’ (out April 28). ‘Heavy Seas of Love’ features vocals from Brian Eno. Charming track, can’t wait for the album!
Watch the official video for Damon Albarn’s new song: ‘Lonely Press Play’. The track comes from his first solo album, “Everyday Robots’ which will be released on April 28th.
