Ex-Blur Frontman Damon Albarn Works on Multiple Projects

 

By: Spacelab Research Staff
Damon Albarn has been working on creating the next phase of his new band. Although there seems to be no name at this point, there is definitely an idea, and an album title, The Good The Bad And The Queen.

It's being formed in the ashes of a project Albarn was working on with Danger Mouse, which of course was formed from the ashes of Gorillaz. Damon and Danger Mouse have ditched the original project they were working on, and Damon will move on to form a new project with guitarist Simon Tong (Verve), bassist Paul Simonon (The Clash), and drummer Tony Allen (Fela Kuti).

They'll release a single in October with a new album out next year. He's also working with Make Trade Fair, a project that is seeking a balance on global trade issues. Damon recently lent his views to the project, saying "This is an outrageous scandal! Unable to sell their tomatoes, farmers in Ghana are losing their livelihoods. Is this fair when European farmers are given subsidies of £250 million annually by the EU to grow excessive amounts of tomatoes?"
