Damon Albarn Unveils 'Lonely Press Play' Video
Damon Albarn has unveiled the video for his new song, "Lonely Press Play," NME notes.

Click below to watch the promo, which was shot by Albarn himself on a tablet in locations as varied as Tokyo, London, Dallas, Utah, Colchester, North Korea, Iceland and Devon. The song is taken from Albarn's forthcoming solo debut, "Everyday Robots," which is released on April 28.

Following an appearance at SXSW in Austin, Texas next month, Albarn will play with his backing band the Heavy Seas at two special shows in London, at the Rivoli Ballroom on April 30 and the Great Hall at QMUL on May 1. He will then headline Latitude Festival on July 19.

Damon Albarn collected the Award for Innovation at the NME Awards 2014 with Austin, Texas last night (February 26) and said that he would "love" to collaborate with Noel Gallagher in the future. Albarn and Gallagher were given the Music Moment of the Year prize for performing together at a Teenage Cancer Trust show in May of last year. The Blur singer also later admitted that the band had written 15 new songs for a new album, but said they won't see the light of day for years.

Albarn also was on hand at last night's ceremony to present Beatles legend Paul McCartney with the Songwriter's Songwriter Award, while other big winners included Blondie, who were the recipients of this year's Godlike Genius title, and Arctic Monkeys, who took home five gongs.
