Damon Albarn - "Lonely Press Play"

After premiering it live, Damon Albarn shares the studio version and video for "Lonely Press Play."
Damon Albarn Everyday Robots

We first heard Damon Albarn's "Lonely Press Play" when he performed it with a string quartet and acoustic guitar in a cafe at Sundance, but he's finally released the studio version, and it's a completely different animal. Built up around a backbone of shuffling electronic sounds and DIY-sounding percussion, Albarn adds layers of graceful piano, guitar, and vocal into an end product that sounds like an eerie post-singularity lullaby. The track comes with a very fitting video shot by Albarn himself on his tablet while traveling the world. Check it out - remember, you can grab his forthcoming album Everyday Robots starting April 29.
