Damon Albarn is ‘permanently dissatisfied’ with his voice

And everything he does in music, for that matter.

Damon Albarn has admitted that he’s never been happy with his singing voice.

The Gorillaz frontman spoke to Entertainment Weekly about a lack of 100% fulfillment with anything he’s done musically.

Albarn said that while his voice has got “better”, and a “lot richer and deeper”, he is “permanently dissatisfied” with what he does.


He said: “I have little glimpses when I’m making something, like, ‘Ahhhh, I love this! This is great!’

“And then that moment ends and I just sort of return to, ‘Am I ever really gonna find — I don’t know what it is, but am I ever really gonna find it?’ I don’t know.”

The former Blur frontman, 50, appeared to warn Gorillaz fans that the upcoming record, ‘The Now Now’, features his vocals – but often unaccompanied.

Speaking on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show in May, Albarn said: “It’s an album that I sing on, it’s pretty much just me singing, and is very in the world of 2-D but he’s come out and he’s singing very expressively.

But he did say that he feels “really, really good about it.”



Gorillaz’s latest song, ‘Hollywood’, a collaboration with rapper Snoop Dogg was released in March.

The band’s follow-up to 2017’s ‘Humanz’ is thought to be released on 29 June.
