Damon Albarn discusses his forthcoming debut solo album, Everyday Robots, in the new issue of Uncut, dated May 2014 and out on Friday (March 28).

Albarn explains that much of the album recalls his childhood in Leytonstone in east London.

“To do something completely retrospective…was a new thing for me,” he says. “I’ve made very personal records before, but none with this kind of chronology.

“There is a chronology to it, it doesn’t stick to it but sort of flies all over the place. But in a way, it’s my most narrative record, I suppose.”

Albarn also talks about working with Brian Eno on the album, and about writing a song for a baby elephant in Tanzania, in the new Uncut, out on Friday.
