Also debut new single –
will yet another album be out this year?
By Blurt Staff
This weekend Damon Albarn pledged his allegiance not to the
flag or to the Queen, but to the united states of The xx – specifically, the
buzzband’s great track “Crystalised,” with Albarn and his Gorillaz (feat. Singer
Daley) giving it a kind of stripped-down treatment that’s very haunting.
It was part of a BBC appearance on the Radio 1 Live Lounge,
which also included “On Melancholy Hill” and the public unveiling of new single
“Doncamatic.” The latter will reportedly be on a new Gorillaz album that Albarn
is saying should be released before the year is out. Watch video clips of the
three songs, below.
