Damon ditches the celeb mates and takes up the iPad for his best cartoon hip-hop album to date
Anyone who has been following the career of Damon Albarn ’s second biggest group over the last 13 years will be well aware that post-punk legend Mark E Smith added his inimitable phrasing to ‘ Glitter Freeze ’ last year. The glam-acid squelch of that ‘ Plastic Beach ’ album track saw him become the latest in a long line of unlikely vocalists to sing over the skewed pop-dance that...

Revolving doors, what have I done?
Someone on the TV, a tepid loss
Revolving doors, what will I become?
A redneck song
As in lonesome south,
like a real straight shooter,
three lanes full,
She found out
The pride needs to cool little rain didn't do it
They're just little pink plastic bags
Blowing on a highway alone
They don't know where they'll go
They just gonna float out, ho, ho, ho
Colorful sailors washed up on the shore
Caught up on bad times
Spider in the ditch, she saw it all
Went to train, ride to dance
Texas can you hear me?
Speed up on the dawn
To the pains and blues of Houston
In the sun
The mountains are waiting
Full moon has come
I got lost on highways
It is the dawn
Let's talk about Phoenix
It's got a way
Of helping you to breathe
A little better
If you have any checked bags
They will be brought to the front of the station
To get to the front, walk
Down to the south end of the platform
