Damon Albarn – Heavy Seas of Love (2014)

February 3, 2020 – Day 225

Between Blur, Gorillaz, The Good, the Bad & the Queen, you wouldn’t think that Damon Albarn needed to release a solo album. But “Everyday Robots” is a true solo album, I supposed he felt the time was right, in 2014, to write about his past and do some soul searching. For assistance on a few songs he turns to neighbour and member of the same gym, Brian Eno. One of these songs is “Heavy Seas of Love” which features Brian Eno on harmonies and percussion. The Leytonstone City Mission Choir also bring a touch of gospel into the mix. The bulk of the album is autobiographical but this song is an antidote to the heaviness of the music and the lyrics from throughout the song. Love will find a way, is the message. “When the world is too tall, you can jump, you won’t fall / You’re in safe hands / What the day will now give, how those seeds will now live / It’s in your hands”
