Damon Albarn – Heavy Seas Of Love

Gospel sunshine streaked with London-grey melancholy, Heavy Seas Of Love is one of the more in-your-face tunes off Damon Albarn's otherwise downbeat and reflective new album, Everyday Robots. Featuring the lovelorn sealion vocals of Albarn's fellow West London artisan pal Brian Eno, it’s one of those songs with the strength to spirit you away and apply a balm to the cares of now. Hey, Damon's been there, too. Maybe even Brian. Well, maybe not Brian.

Heavy Seas of Love will be available as a single track download from April 27, 2014. Its parent album, Everyday Robots, is released by Parlophone on April 28. The Heavy Seas is also the name of Albarn’s new touring band – consisting of guitarist Seye, drummer Pauli The PSM, bassist Jeff Wootton and Mike Smith on keyboards. They play the following UK dates...

30th April - The Rivoli Ballroom, London 1st May - The Great Hall, QMUL, London 19th July - Latitude festival (headline), Southwold
