Damon plans solo album and Dr Dee soundtrack

Damon Albarn talks about his new album projects in the October issue of Q magazine [link down] (thanks 2-J for the scan). After finishing an album with Tony Allen and Flea this autumn, his first priority is to record a soundtrack of his Dr Dee opera:

"I'm going to get everyone from Dr Dee in Maida Vale or Abbey Road and run through the whole thing. We've only got two days because it's so expensive to get all those people [cast and orchestra] together. It'll be nice because that's the way records used to be made: get everyone in, everyone knows their parts and they just play it and that's it - I'll have to wear one of those '60s George Martin suits."

"Then I'd like to do a record with my own name on it. I don't know what but there's lots of stuff."

An insider revealed earlier to The Sun that Damon will be working on the solo record for most of next year.
