The 12-track album is Albarn’s first as a solo artist and features collaborations with Brian Eno and Bat for Lashes’ Natasha Khan. “Everyday Robots” explores modern society’s relationship with technology.
Albarn explained in an interview with Pitchfork: “The album is about going back and seeing into the near future, wondering about the effect that that technology is going to have on us, emotionally. We’re in a period of massive technological transformation right now, and I wanted to comment on that.”
