Pre-order the newest from Damon Albarn

Preorders / April 10, 2012

At both Amazon and Best Buy, you can now pre-order the new album from Damon Albarn, entitled “Dr. Dee.” Albarn, who was the frontman for both Blur and Gorillaz, is releasing the solo work on May 8th. According to the product description, the album, “is an 18 track work inspired by the life of John Dee (1527-1608), mathematician, alchemist, philosopher and advisor to Elizabeth I. Dee is a singular enigma: an Englishman so influential that he defined how we measure years, so quintessential that he lives on in Shakespeare’s words; yet so shrouded in mystery that he’s fallen from the very pages of history itself.”
