Blur frontman Damon Albarn set to release first official solo album

Damon Albarn has announced that he will release his first official solo album in April.

After years of releases with Blur and a number of collaborations and spin-offs, he is finally to release a studio album under his own name.

He said the album, Everyday Robots, will come out on April 28 with a message posted on his Twitter feed.

He has already given fans a teaser of his work with a short black and white clip which he posted on YouTube featuring him seated at a piano.

Albarn has been involved in a number of side projects beyond Blur - whose last studio album came out in 2003 - including his The Good, The Bad And The Queen album, his Mali Music collaboration and Gorillaz.

He has also released soundtracks to the stage productions he has scored, Monkey: Journey To The West and Dr Dee.
