Damon Albarn has revealed he is currently working on ideas for a new solo album following the release of his ‘Dr Dee‘ opera this week.
Speaking to BBC Radio 4′s Front Row programme, Albarn admitted that while he doesn’t particularly like the concept of ‘solo records’, he is working on another album under his own name.
“This week we’re mucking around with these Russian synthesizers in a very loose mind of doing some kind of record under my name,” he said. “I suppose you could call it a solo record, but I don’t like that word. It sounds very lonely – solo. I don’t really want to be solo in my life. But yeah, I’m making another record.”
Meanwhile, Albarn revealed last week he could be prepared to work on another Gorillaz album without the accompanying art and visuals of Jamie Hewlett.
“It was very much Jamie did the visuals and I did the music,” he told Shortlist. “The music won’t change, so there could be another Gorillaz record tomorrow. It wouldn’t necessarily have Murdoc – the cartoon aspect to it – but musically no, nothing’s changed whatsoever.”Just Published:
