Listen: Damon Albarn Plays 11 Songs From ‘Dr Dee’ Opera

    It’s not easy keeping up with a workhorse like Damon Albarn, but you might remember that earlier this year he debuted his very own opera, Dr Dee, at the Manchester International Festival. We heard a preview of the material over the summer, but it’s since been removed. And we’ve been left wondering exactly what kind of music the Blur/Gorillaz frontman wrote for Dr Dee. Well, our prayers (and yours, too, I’m sure) have been answered thanks to Albarn’s recent appearance on BBC Radio 6. He played a total of 11 tunes from the opera’s soundtrack and you can them all via the BBC Radio 6 player. Win. [CoS]
