“What I love about Gorillaz is that I can bring [in] anyone I want, you know?” he said. “I was in Jamaica recently and recorded a Gorillaz song with Bad Bunny, that’s something exciting for next year.”
Albarn also revealed that the collaboration will serve as the lead single to Gorillaz’ forthcoming project, which he says is inspired by Latin America.
“Bad Bunny is the first single. It is the first song I have made from this new project,” Albarn said.
“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.”
Albarn is set to drop his new solo album ‘The Nearer The Fountain, More Pure The Stream Flows’ this November. He’ll be performing cuts from the album with a live band and a string quarter later this month (September 20) at London’s Globe Theatre, with the show being live-streamed around the world.
