Damon Albarn Song Round-Up

Prior to his appearance at New York’s Governor’s Ball Music Festival earlier this month, Damon Albarn paid a visit to 30 Rockefeller Center to perform a few songs for Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show. Albarn kicked things off with ‘Lonely Press Play’ off of his newly-released solo album, Everyday Robots. He followed that up with a web exclusive rendition of ‘This Is A Low’ from Blur’s Parklife, which celebrated its twentieth anniversary earlier this year. With four-piece string accompaniment, no less!

Albarn also made his live solo debut of one of Blur’s biggest hits (and, definitely their biggest stateside), ‘Song 2.’ Albarn and his backing band, the Heavy Seas, performed the 1997 hit in Boston last week to fantastic applause. Watch a clip below.
