Damon Albarn will be making his way from Governor’s Ball to Bonnaroo this June and is pleased to confirm some new U.S. stops in between. In additional to his previously announced festival dates, Damon will headline New York’s Irving Plaza followed by stops in Boston, Baltimore, Raleigh and Atlanta. A limited number of Damon Albarn VIP packages will be available for these dates, visit damonalbarnmusic.com for details on these and general on-sale dates.
Tomorrow, Damon’s first ever solo record Everyday Robots will hit stores and digital retailers across the country. Reviews have already started to roll in, all hailing this intensely beautiful and deeply personal solo debut from one of the most innovative and respected musical voices of this or any era:
“All of Albarn’s musical obsessions are present on his revealing solo debut… The results can often recall Seventies Eno at his most meditative and Village Green-era Ray Davies… With a restless innovator like Albarn, where you’re going always matters more than where you’ve been.”–ROLLING STONE, 4 Stars
“a dark, compellingly insular album-bracing in its honesty, a bit haunted in its arrangements, vividly fragmented in the way that memory can be. It’s the sound of a man who has many regrets but doesn’t really regret any of them.”–GQ
“a refreshing, richly dense, heart-stopping moment of quiet panic, slow-burning over acoustic plucks and fluttering with washes of uncanny ease…Taking a trip down the rabbit hole with Damon Albarn playing in the background makes one thing clear: diversity has always been his sole consistency, and in that respect, I hope he never stays the same.”–CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND
“Everyday Robots is without a doubt the most personal album in Albarn’s long and incredibly varied career. Its songs have a collage-like texture that make them feel like hand-pasted scrapbook pages-the sound of long-dormant memories rustling suddenly back to life.”-PITCHFORK
