Noel Gallagher sings backing vocals on We Got The Power, which features on the Gorillaz new Humanz LP, which is set for release on 28 April 2017.
Asked about recording with Gallagher, Albarn told Radio X’s Gordon Smart: “It’s really great, he’s fantastic in the studio. It’s nice when you see how someone goes about their business. He’s great.”
Talking about the process involved in making the track, the Blur frontman revealed: “At one point this song had Graham (Coxon), Noel and me on it and it was sort of heading slightly in the wrong direction.
“It was becoming almost retro in its sort of spirit and way too rocky for this record so I kind of stripped it right back down again. We play it slightly different live then how it is on the record. It’s sort of the song that comes on during the final titles of a film. The climax. I thought Jehnny would take a bit of the testosterone off.”
