Damon Albarn will play a number of intimate London shows to launch his solo debut 'Everyday Robots'.

The Blur frontman has announced that he will perform at the Rivioli Ballroom in Crofton Park on April 30, followed by a show at the People's Palace in Mile End on May 1. Both dates will come shortly after the release of 'Everyday Robots', which is co-produced by XL Records boss Richard Russell, on April 28. The LP will also feature contributions from Brian Eno and Bat For Lashes singer Natasha Khan. Tickets are priced at £35 each and go on sale this Friday (February 14) at 9am GMT.

Ahead of the shows, Damon Albarn will be honoured with the NME Award For Innovation at this year's NME Awards with Austin, Texas. He pick up the prize in person at the Awards, which will take place on Wednesday, February 26 at the O2 Academy, Brixton.

The award recognises the singer, songwriter, producer and composer as one of the UK’s most influential and consistently groundbreaking musicians. The NME Award For Innovation not only recognises Albarn's past, but equally celebrates him as one of the world's leading music heavyweights in 2014.
