Exclusive: Damon Albarn – ‘I’d love to collaborate with Noel Gallagher’

Former Britpop rivals won Music Moment Of The Year for Teenage Cancer Trust duet at NME Awards 2014 (February 26)

Damon Albarn, who collected the Award For Innovation at the NME Awards 2014 with Austin, Texas last night (February 26), has said that he would “love” to collaborate with Noel Gallagher in the future. Click above to watch Albarn’s video interview.

Albarn and Gallagher were given the Music Moment Of The Year prize for performing together at a Teenage Cancer Trust show in May of last year. The Blur singer also later admitted that the band had written 15 new songs for a new album, but said they won’t see the light of day for years.

Albarn also was on hand at last night’s ceremony to present Beatles legend Paul McCartney with the Songwriter’s Songwriter Award, while other big winners included Blondie, who were the recipients of this year’s Godlike Genius title, and Arctic Monkeys, who took home five gongs.
