The Damon Albarn–Flea Album Has a Title

It's been almost a year since Albarn announced his newest collaborative project, an album with Good, the Bad & the Queen drummer Tony Allen and Flea of Red Hot Chili Peppers fame. Today, Albarn revealed the title: Rocketjuice and the Moon. Now, at first glance, this may seem like a silly name, but Vulture asks you: How else does one get to the moon? Rockets have had the most success today, have they not? And based on our very basic understanding of physics and general air travel principles, we're pretty sure they need to run on something. If that doesn't convince you, consider Albarn's own very reasonable explanation for the title: "Someone in Lagos did the sleeve design and that’s the name he gave it." Never argue with a dude from Lagos. [Pitchfork]
