Damon Albarn to release '130 musician' album
Damon Albarn has revealed that he plans to release a new album in July.

The star explained that the new album will feature over 100 musicians, including a Chinese choir and an orchestra. However, he would not be drawn on the name of the project or whether it ties into any of his previous work.

Albarn told BBC 6Music: "This one's [the new album] got about 80, 90 musicians on it – something in that region. It's got a 100-piece Chinese choir on one of the tunes. That plus the orchestra probably goes to about 120, 130 people."

Albarn hinted that the project may have something to do with his recent opera, 'Monkey: Journey To The West' by saying that the title of the project had "something of monkeys in there. There's a monkey or two in there at least – a bit like Gorillaz as well. It's not an opera [though], it's a proper record".
