Don't be so hard on yourself, sir...

Damon Albarn has revealed he is "permanently dissatisfied" with his work.

The British songwriter has constructed one of pop's finest songbooks, moving from Blur's era defining work through to Gorillaz and even an opera or two.

Yet he's still not entirely happy. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Damon Albarn revealed that while his voice has become "better" and a "lot richer and deeper" he remains "permanently dissatisfied" with his own work.

He explains: "I have little glimpses when I’m making something, like, 'Ahhhh, I love this! This is great!'"

"And then that moment ends and I just sort of return to, ‘Am I ever really gonna find — I don’t know what it is, but am I ever really gonna find it?’ I don’t know".

Gorillaz new album 'The Now Now' will be released on June 29th.
