Listen to Damon Albarn's First Single From <i>Dr. Dee</i>

Gorillaz vocalist and songwriter Damon Albarn just released a self-titled album with side-project Rocket Juice & the Moon and is already set to release the soundtrack to his opera Dr. Dee on May 8.

The opera—which ran for nine days in July 2011 in Manchester, England—received acclaim from British papers. Dr. Dee was inspired by the life of mathematician and adviser to Elizabeth I, John Dee. The 18-track album was recorded with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra after the opera finished it’s run.
