Gorillaz have a song with rapper Bad Bunny on their upcoming project.
Gorillaz have teamed up with Bad Bunny on an upcoming song.
Damon Albarn has revealed he and the 27-year-old Puerto Rican rapper recorded a reggaeton track together in Jamaica, which will act as the first single on an upcoming project by his virtual band with comic book artist JAMIE HEWLETT.
The Blur frontman told The Wrap: “What I love about Gorillaz is that I can bring [in] anyone I want, you know?
“I was in Jamaica recently and recorded a Gorillaz song with Bad Bunny, that’s something exciting for next year."
He continued: “Bad Bunny is the first single. It is the first song I have made from this new project.
“I still don’t know when it will come out, or how we are going to launch it, but we finished it and it is … yes, more or less a reggaeton song. It’s Bad Bunny meets Gorillaz.”
And Damon previously teased a collaboration of sorts with Sir Paul McCartney.
The 53-year-old musician revealed last year that he recorded music with the legendary Beatles star and he hopes to use it on an upcoming album from Gorillaz.
He 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, 79, 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."
Meanwhile, Gorillaz are also eyeing up a track with another musical icon, after Jamie recently teased Damon had a written a song for Dolly Parton.
He said: "I suggested working with Dolly Parton imagining Damon would throw it back in my face and he turned around and was like, 'Are you serious? I f****** love Dolly Parton'. So we need to find a way of getting in touch with Dolly. Damon's already written the track, I think! We had this conversation three weeks ago when he was in Paris, and I spoke to him the other day and he said, 'I've written that one.'"
