Damon Albarn – Heavy Seas Of Love

By Will Oliver, March 25th 2014

Damon Albarn - Everyday Robots

Over the last few months Damon Albarn has been teasing us with bits and pieces of his debut solo LP Everyday Robots. We’ve gotten some studio recordings of songs, but some have been just live session cuts or radio rips.

A while back we heard a radio rip of “Heavy Seas Of Love”, but now Albarn has released the official studio recording.

This one sounded lovely when I saw him play it down at SXSW. The studio recording sounds just as lovely. Find it below.

After all these years, I finally saw Damon Albarn live. I never got to see him in the many groups he performed in over the years (Blur, Gorillaz, The Good, The Bad & The Queen), but I can’t complain as I finally got to see the master at work. His Fader Fort set was not to be missed, as it contained songs from all over his incredible career with these various projects.

He used most of his time to perform tracks off his upcoming solo album Everyday Robots, including many we are familiar with already such as the title track, “Lonely Press Play”, and “Heavy Seas Of Love”. There were also plenty new ones such as “You and Me”, “Hollow Ponds” and a lively cut called “Mr. Tembo.”

He also made time for his other projects, such as The Good, The Bad & The Queen’s “Kingdom Of Doom” (one of my favorite songs of his). Then there was also many Gorillaz songs, such as “Tomorrow Comes Today”, “On Melancholy Hill”, and “El Manana.” He brought out some friends to mark the occasion, including De La Soul for “Feel Good Inc.” and the original team that recorded “Clint Eastwood” (for the first time ever live): Del Tha Funky Homosapien, Dan The Automater. At the tail end of that Snoop Dogg came out to drop a verse from “Drop It Like It’s Hot” to send the crowd into near pandemonium. It was pretty damn cool.

It was an epic set in every way, and totally worth how long I waited to finally see the truly great Damon Albarn. I’m looking forward to his upcoming set at Governors Ball this summer.

Damon Albarn

So far we have heard bits and pieces of Damon Albarn”>Damon Albarn’s debut solo ablum Everyday Robots (April 28 via Parlophone/Warner Bros). We got a stream of the title track, a radio rip of a track called “Heavy Seas Of Love” , and a few live performances of a track called “Lonely Press Play.” Now Albarn has finally released an official studio recording of the latter.

The song sounds just as pure and imaginitive as it does when he performs it live. You get to experience through a visual stunning video that was actually shot by Albarn himself. The video’s description reads:

The footage in the video is shot by Damon on a tablet and you’ll see scenes from Tokyo, London, Dallas, Utah, Colchester, North Korea, Iceland and Devon.

Enjoy “Lonely Press Play” below.

ALBARN

Damon Albarn’s debut solo album Everyday Robots is one of my most anticipated releases of the year. We already heard the fantastic first single and title track, as well as a radio rip of a song called “Heavy Seas Of Love.”

During Sundance, he played a small show. Video of a song called “Lonely, Press Play” that he performed during that show surfaced and the song sounded awesome. Now we got an even more gentle version of the song that he performed live for Dermot O’Leary’s show on BBC Radio 2 earlier today. He also performed a cover of Terry Jacks’ “Seasons In The Sun.”

Both performances can be found below.

[new]: Damon Albarn – Heavy Seas Of Love

By Will Oliver, January 31st 2014

Damon Albarn - Everyday Robots

We already heard the title track of Damon Albarn’s debut album Everyday Robots, and it’s quite amazing. We also got to hear a new song from a live performance he did at Sundance.

Now yet another song from his album has premiered: “Heavy Seas Of Love.” It has been released through the site Genero.TV and unfortunately has an annoying robot radio tag playing over it. But you can still get a nice healthy sample of the track, enough to let you know that this is indeed yet another great track from Albarn. More proof that this debut album is going to be something very special.

Damon Albarn

With all of Damon Albarn‘s musical projects, it’s hard to believe that he hasn’t released a proper solo album yet. But that will change in 2014, as he has hinted in a short album teaser just released a few days ago.

The teaser briefly shows Albarn at a piano, as a piano-led track with some electronic beats plays over. It’s a quick blip of a sample, but it’s sounding good.

Can’t wait to see what he has in store for us.

Check out the teaser below. Read the rest of this entry »
