's Damon Albarn
has begun work on his next solo project, just days after his first solo album "Dr Dee
" was released.
The hard-working frontman has numerous musical ventures and is not resting up, despite having a series of Blur shows to focus on in the Summer. Talking to Radio 4
's Front Row
, Damon said that there is talk of him making his first proper solo album and that he's "mucking around
" with ideas at the moment.
"This week we're mucking around with these Russian synthesizers in a very loose mind of doing some kind of record under my name. I suppose you could call it a solo record, but I don't like that word. It sounds very lonely - solo. I don't really want to be solo in my life. But yeah, I'm making another record,
" he said.
Albarn also went on to criticise the "corporate
" Olympics, despite the fact he will headline a closing ceremony concert for The Games alongside his Blur bandmates.
"We're putting it on for London and people who hopefully want to sing their hearts out in a park,
" Albarn argued. Adding: "I'm signed up to the idea of regeneration in London and putting on a good account of ourselves; definitely.
Just last week Damon Albarn claimed
that he could potentially make a new Gorillaz
album without his animator sidekick Jamie Hewlett
