Damon Albarn has hinted at a Gorillaz collaboration with Sir Paul McCartney, while Jamie Hewlett revealed they hope to record a track with Dolly Parton
Damon Albarn has hinted at a Gorillaz collaboration with Sir Paul McCartney.
The 52-year-old musician revealed that he has recorded music with the legendary Beatles star and he hopes to use it on an upcoming album from Gorillaz, the virtual band he setup with comic book artist Jamie Hewlett.
Speaking on Dutch podcast ‘Kink’, Damon said: “I have a recording of Paul and myself that I could use for a Gorillaz track. It could easily fit on a Gorillaz album. It’s a very simple, basic recording but I would never release it without talking to him first.”
Damon went on to insist that the recording is not a full track but praised Paul, 78, as “one of the most special pop musicians”.
He said: “[I don’t want to say I have] a track with Paul, because I don’t, but I could definitely work with him. He is one of the most special pop musicians ever.”
