Hear Damon Albarn’s Warm, Wistful ‘Season in the Sun’ and ‘Lonely Press Play’
Blur leader covers Terry Jacks' 1974 hit for 'Everyday Robots' BBC appearance
Damon Albarn unveiled Everyday Robots song “Lonely, Press Play” at SPIN’s intimate Sundance showcase. Now, the Gorillaz and Blur boss brings it to the BBC along with a non-album cut: his cover of “Season in the Sun” by ’70s soft-rocker Terry Jacks. The two songs share a certain wistfulness that sits well with Albarn’s crackling vocals and warm finger-picking. The Radio 2 performance follows the release of the Brian Eno collaboration “Heavy Seas of Love” and the stunning video for “Everyday Robots.” The album of the same name is due out April 29 via Warner Bros.
