We already knew that previous collaborators Damon Albarn and Bobby Womack — the famed soulman appeared on Gorillaz’ Plastic Beach — were working together again when we reported that they were in the studio with Lana Del Rey. But it appears that they’re not just working with the buzzing singer.
Albarn, along with XL Recordings’ Richard Russell, are co-producing Womack’s upcoming album. Russell broke the news in an interview with Billboard, in which he said fans of the Weeknd and Frank Ocean should be pleased with Womack’s new material. Russell added, “I think those artists are very influenced by Bobby and you can join a lot of the dots.” Word. Now I have another album I can’t wait to hear. Great. [P4K]
