The former Oasis and Blur enemies have grown closer in the past decade and rumours about a joint project have been floated in the past. Albarn is currently working on the next Gorillaz record, the animated band’s first project since ‘The Fall’ in 2011.
Gallagher, in a new interview, said he was aware of this fact and is open to recording for it if he’s wanted: “He’s making a new Gorillaz album and he’s got my number, so he’s only got to ask. There is talk of doing something but I’m not sure what it is.”
He told the Daily Star newspaper, however, that their busy schedules may mean this collaboration never gets past the ideas stage: “You can bet your life the minute I finish this tour he’ll go out on his,” he said. “I mean trying to get the two of us in the same room would be a fuckiing miracle. But I’m certainly open to the idea, for sure.”
Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds released latest album ‘Chasing Yesterday’ in 2015. The band are currently on the road with a tour that culminates at the end of the month at Bournemouth’s BIC. The band already played dates in Aberdeen, Liverpool, Leeds and Birmingham. Super Furry Animals support on all dates except in Bournemouth.
A summer of festival dates will follow.
Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds will play:
Birmingham, Genting Arena (April 29)
Bournemouth, BIC (April 30)
