Listen: Damon Albarn ‘The Marvelous Dream’ First Single

Written by Brayden Darke on March 29, 2012

Damon Albarn has released the lead single The Marvelous Dream from his upcoming new album from his opera project named Dr. Dee. The 18-track album will be released on the 7th May.

Previously he released a trailer for the album, with the preview of a track named Apple Carts and footage of him recording the track at Albarn’s West London studio with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra.

Dr Dee is inspired by John Dee, a mathematical polymath and advisor to Queen Elizabeth I. The video lingers on a shot of the John Dee House, which is a block of flats named after the same man.
