While Damon Albarn has been putting the final touches on his second album, he seems to have also been busy with his two bands: Gorillaz and Blur.
Talking with NME, Albarn says that he has “…been working on carnival-themed music with Gorillaz with a lot of people from west London.”
Albarn added, “We’re really going back to the spirit of the first record.”
As for Blur? Albarn says, “Well, we did have a chat recently, but we haven’t really progressed further than that. We did have an idea though.”
