Damon Albarn Planning Debut Solo Album & Tour, Confirms New Blur Record

Written by Mike Hohnen on May 29, 2013

Damon Albarn has just made everyone’s hump day slightly more bearable. After years of umming and ahhing on the subject, Albarn has now dished out some highly sought after information regarding his long-awaited debut solo album.

Speaking to Rolling Stone around the time of Blur’s headlining performance at Coachella 2013, Albarn explained that habitual cohort Richard Russell oversaw the production of his solo album. Albarn notes that Russell, who also heads XL Records, “does the rhythmic side, and I do everything else… its sort of folk soul”.

The impact the album makes will be backed up by a run of solo tour dates from Albarn, who has promised shows that include tracks from his entire career, including hits from the likes of Gorillaz and, of course, Blur.

On the topic of Blur, Albarn has explained that the band’s new record plans are continuing unheeded:

“We’ve got a couple of occasions when we’re stuck in the middle of nowhere. So we might make the record in a week. If we can, it would be nice.”

Along with the new record, Blur should be announcing some Australian tour dates any….minute….now…
