Preview & Win: Damon Albarn's New Opera

May 4th 2012 | 12:17pm | Staff Writer
Damon Albarn has today released his latest musical project to the world. Dr Dee is the soundtrack of the opera he created last year and ran as part of the Manchester International Arts Festival.

It's the latest musical exploit in a stunning career that has seen Albarn helm bands like Blur, Gorillaz and The Good, The Bad & The Queen as well as dabble in theatre soundtracks like Monkey and this, Dr Dee.

Out through EMI, they've kindly given us a preview stream of the album for you to listen to below. But they've also given us a vinyl copy of the release to giveaway (plus five CDs as runners-up prizes).

To win, comment below with your favourite Albarn-related project and why. Winner will be drawn in a week's time!

 You have to be able to get to one of theMusic.com.au's offices in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne or Perth to win!
