This amazing new song from one of Albarn’s many new projects, the opera Dr Dee The Marvellous Dream came to my ears today. I love Albarn when he’s like this, a low key melancholy son of Ray Davies. It’s actually quite Matt Johnson in it’s feel. But it’s brilliant, musically and lyrically. This year is turning into a year when people seem to be writing proper songs again, Weller, Dodgy and now Albarn. There’s something in the air, at least where the old men are concerned anyway!
