We here at SLAMXHYPE cannot wait for ex-Blur/Gorillaz frontman Damon Albarn’s solo album Everyday Robots. Featuring the likes of Natasha Khan (Bat for Lashes) and Brian Eno, the record is due out on April 28th, and is being co-produced by XL Recordings head honcho Richard Russell — with whom Albarn worked with on Bobby Womack’s The Bravest Man in the Universe. Albarn has this to say about Russell’s input: “Richard does the rhythmic side and I do everything else. Making a solo record can be such a disaster, so I thought if we’re going to make a record with my name on it, I should get someone to really produce it; take that responsibility away from myself.” Sounds like a plan.  Check out the first video for the title track, directed by acclaimed British designer Aitor Throup.
