After squashing the rumors of a potentially new Blur album, Damon Albarn is still dishing out the tunes with his upcoming solo release Everyday Robots, out April 28. The ex-Blur, ex-Gorillaz, ex-The Good The Bad & The Queen frontman took to Jimmy Kimmel Live during their special SXSW broadcast, performing “Mr. Tembo” (a song about an elephant, apparently) and closing out with “Lonely Press Play.”
