LISTEN: Damon Albarn Shares New Africa Express Song “Become the Tiger”

The upbeat dance track is ready for your summertime playlist.

It’s pretty safe to say that Damon Albarn is something of a workaholic. The Blur and Gorillaz frontman is neck-and-neck with Jack White for sheer number of ongoing musical projects, and has just revived yet another one of them.

Albarn first released music as Africa Express back in 2012 after taking a trip to Bali with a group of musicians, including Brian Eno and Nick Zinner of Yeah Yeah Yeahs. For his latest tune under the moniker, he’s recruited artists Sibot and Mr Jukes for the bouncy, synth-heavy dance track that’s got summer written all over it.

“Become the Tiger” will appear on the upcoming album, EGOLI, set for release on July 12 via their newly formed label Africa Express Records. Listen to it below.
