As his beloved band Blur returns with its first new album in over a decade, Damon Albarn talked with XPN’s Eric Schuman for our Monday night New Music Show. Albarn talks about the making of The Magic Whip, with sessions initially serving as a way to pass the time while the band was stuck in Asia following a cancelled festival date. Though a tour in support of the new album is on Albarn’s mind, he remains reliably busy with other projects, including a new musical based on Alice In Wonderland.
