Damon Albarn to release new Dr Dee album in May

Damon Albarn has confirmed the release of a brand new studio album, ‘Dr Dee‘, which will be released by Parlophone/EMI on May 7 2012.

Dr_Dee

‘Dr Dee’ is 18 tracks of songs and music inspired by the life of John Dee, mathematician, polymath and advisor to Queen Elizabeth I. Described by Albarn as ‘strange pastoral folk’, Dr Dee combines Damon’s voice with early English choral and instrumentation alongside modern, West African and Rensaissance sounds.

The album was recorded last year in London and Salford with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra and mixed by Valgeir Sigursson in Rejkjavik.

Damon Albarn will perform songs from the ‘Dr Dee’ album at OneFest in the UK on April 14. More details are on the OneFest website.
