NME Radar Award winner The Child Of Lov is currently streaming the collaborative track made with Blur frontman Damon Albarn.

Scroll down to listen to 'One Day', which features vocals from both The Child Of Lov's Cole Williams and Albarn.

The Child Of Lov released his debut, self-titled album earlier this week on the Domino label. Read NME's review of the LP by clicking here.

In a recent piece with Interview Magazine, Williams said he was looking forward to playing live. He commented: "Yeah, I did some rehearsals already. I'm looking forward to playing live. It's been crazy seeing it come together in the form of a band, because I was never in a band. I never played in a band or played with other musicians properly, so its been an adventure." The Child Of Lov will be playing Bestival this September.

Of the Albarn collaboration, Williams added: "My manager was actually going to let him hear my music, and then he was in his hotel room [and] I wasn't there. My manager was like, "What should I do?" He decided to just sing some of the songs to Damon himself, which I wouldn't have advised him to do, but it worked out. Damon was sort of intrigued, I guess, and he doesn't have to do anything he doesn't want. In the UK, he's pop royalty. It's great to have been able to work with him."
