Damon Albarn Unveils New Gorillaz Track

Blur and Gorillaz frontman Damon Albarn made a guest appearance on BBC Radio 2 last night and premiered a previously unheard Gorillaz track “Whirlwind.”

The song was a cut off of the group’s 2010 album Plastic Beach. “Whirlwind” was recorded as part of the Plastic Beach Syrian Sessions and features the Lebanese National Orchestra for Oriental Arabic Music.

The future of both Blur and Gorillaz has been in doubt for a while, with Albarn claiming that a new record with Gorillaz is “unlikely.” Stream the entire broadcast at bbc.co.uk that also includes interviews from Idris Elba and Paul Simonon of The Clash.
