In the same year that Blur are honored by the Brit Awards and announce an Olympic show at London’s Hyde Park, Damon Albarn will release solo album ‘Dr Dee’, on May 7th via Parlophone Records.

Inspired by the life of John Dee – mathematician, polymath and advisor to Elizabeth I – Albarn describes the record as “strange pastoral folk”.

Partly recorded with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, the album combines Albarn’s voice with early English choral and instrumentation alongside modern, West African and Renaissance sounds.

Albarn will perform songs from ‘Dr Dee’ at One Fest on April 14th.
