Blur’s Damon Albarn has commented on a potential collaboration with Billie Eilish suggesting that it might happen. Rumors have apparently been circulating that the pair could come together for a potential hit song, but Damon has subtly dashed all hopes of that from happening.
According to Far Out Magazine, Blur frontman, Damon Albarn hinted that a collaboration with the often experimental Billie Eilish could happen in the near future. When asked about artists like Eilish in a recent interview, Albarn mentioned loving her style, saying: “I really rate her, and I’d love to work with her at some point, At some point, I’m sure it’ll happen”. Albarn had previously spoken about working with Eilish in the past, but their timelines never aligning: “Yeah, it will. Yeah, I think we keep trying to do it. It’s just a case of schedules,” he said.
Eilish has spoken highly of Albarn in the past as well. When performing together at Coachella, Eilish introduced the Gorillaz frontman to the stage with reverence, saying: “This man changed my life in a lot of ways and changed my complete view of what music could be, and what art could be, and what creation could be. My first favourite band ever was The Good, The Bad and the Queen when I was six and Blur changed the world, and Gorillaz changed the world, and this man is literally a genius, and that’s that”.
Time will tell if these two will release a song together.
