After sharing about half the album, Damon Albarn is streaming his debut solo album Everyday Robots in it’s entirerity via iTunes Radio. The 12-track album has been described by Albarn as his “most soul-searching” and “autobiographical” yet, exploring the ever-changing relationship between nature and technology. In a recent interview with Pitchfork the ex Blur and Groillaz frontman explained the concept behind Everyday Robots:
“The album is about going back and seeing into the near future, wondering about the effect that that technology is going to have on us, emotionally,” he told Pitchfork. “We’re in a period of massive technological transformation right now, and I wanted to comment on that.”
The stream comes ahead of the album’s official release next Tuesday, and features collaborations with Brian Eno and Natasha Khan of Bat for Lashes.
