The pair have discussed making music together 'at least once', he tells NME

Damon Albarn has revealed that making an album with Noel Gallagher is a “distinct possibility” in future.

In this week’s NME, which is on newsstands from tomorrow (April 9) and available digitally, Albarn reveals that he and Gallagher have discussed the idea of making music together “at least once”.

“I still see Noel from time to time. We text a bit,” Albarn says. When asked if the pair would be making a record together, he replied, “I can imagine that being a very distinct possibility at some point in the future. But, as yet we haven’t really talked about it, although…”

Albarn continues: “OK we have a little bit. We’re talking. It’s not anything to get excited about yet. I mean, he’s doing his thing. He’s finishing a new record. I’ve got my record coming out, but the principle of us making music together is something…you know, it would be fair to say, we have discussed it at least once.”

Last year, the pair put two decades of Britpop animosity behind them tonight when they performed together at London’s Royal Albert Hall for a Teenage Cancer Trust gig.

Damon Albarn will release his debut solo album ‘Everyday Robots’ on April 28.
