The second video from Damon Albarn’s forthcoming album Everyday Robots has been released, and features scenes shot by the singer during travels in Tokyo, London, Dallas, Utah, Colchester, North Korea, Iceland and Devon.

Among the imagery featured in the promo, which is for the track Lonely Press Play, are shots taken from taxi and plane windows, alongside snatched glimpses of Albarn sleeping or driving. Travelogues of this kind are familiar territory visually, but the promo features excellent editing which knits the scenes together with the music perfectly. Plus there is undoubted interest in the fact that the visuals have supposedly been shot by Albarn himself, offering fans an intimate glimpse into his recent travels.
