Releasing: 8 May
Pop maestro Paul McCartney has done it (perhaps a bit unsuccessfully) and so not to be outdone, the musical adventurer otherwise known as Damon Albarn has now also composed an opera. Albarn has come a long way since his storied, but musically limiting, Britpop days, having formed the genre-busting Gorillaz and performed superb collaborations with acclaimed artists in the worldbeat arena. Now, he’s flexing his artistic muscles even further tackling perhaps the most difficult musical form to master. The soundtrack for Dr. Dee will release in early May. Stay tuned.
