Damon Albarn - Solo

Ahead of his first solo album, Damon Albarn gives The Culture Show exclusive and intimate access to his life as he prepares to present this new work to the world.

First he was the poster boy of 90s Britpop, then the music man behind electro-cartoon duo Gorillaz. More recently he's composed operas and helmed the world music juggernaut that is Africa Express...

Now finally, after coming full circle with Blur's triumphant 20-year reunion tour, Damon Albarn goes it alone.

Due in April 2014, Everyday Robots will be his first proper solo album and he's given The Culture Show exclusive and intimate access to his life as he prepares to present this new work to the world.

It's a lyrical journey that takes him back to his childhood, to the places he holds dear and the memories that infuse his new collection of songs, many of which have never been heard by the public. The film follows Albarn as he looks behind his own masks of the past to give an honest account of himself and his work as a solo artist.
