Albarn hits out at 'selfie generation'

Pop music no longer challenges the establishment or discusses politics because performers are part of "the selfie generation", Blur frontman Damon Albarn has said.

"But look at music now. Does it say anything? Young artists talk about themselves, not what's happening out there. It's the selfie generation. They're talking platitudes. What are any of them saying? I don't hear anything other than: 'This is how I feel'," the 47-year-old said.

Blur are due to release their eighth studio album, The Magic Whip, on April 27.
