Blur frontman Damon Album has premiered the first single from his Dr Dee opera, 'The Marvelous Dream'.
The track is taken from Damon's upcoming solo release, putting aside his many bands in favour of something more subtle.
The mellow track will be welcomed by Blur fans, as it sounds a lot like the legendary indie band at their most reflective.
Damon recently came under fire from former Streets frontman Mike Skinner who claimed: 'Damon Albarn needs to stop' claiming that his music was 'a bit mad' and that elder musicians can look ridiculous trying to keep up with the kids. 'The Marvelous Dream' is anything but mad, and is one in the eye for Skinner with the tracks maturity and sobriety.
The video is accompanied by a lingering shot of John Dee House, a block of council flats named after the same mathematician on which Albarn's opera is based. Watch 'The Marvelous Dream' below.
Blur will perform at London's Hyde Park this summer. For more information, visit Gigwise Gig Tickets.
