More details revealed about Gorillaz / The Horrors collaboration

As previously reported on Gorillaz-Unofficial (original news item here), in a video interview posted on 1st July, The Horrors revealed they had worked on a track for the third Gorillaz album.

Now, in an interview with BBC 6Music, The Horrors' bassist Rhys Webb has revealed more about the collaboration:- "[Damon] got a copy of [our second album] really early, contacted us out completely out of the blue and told us how much he liked it. It was kind of a strange email saying, 'Would you guys be able to come down to my studio at some point? We had no idea really what it was about but thought that it would be great to go down there, have a chat, it would be nice to meet him. We went down to the studio and he said, 'We're working on the new album and we've not collaborated with a guitar band before and your album is one of the most exciting things I've heard in a long time. Would you be up for working on a track?'. He played us a lot of tracks he'd been working and, musically, they were just in a really similar place to where we were at the moment - rhythmically and the instruments that were going through the sound - so it made perfect sense for us. We had such a good time working with him."

Webb also reveals in the interview that Damon has also lent a hand to the mixing of the psych-rockers forthcoming single Whole New Way. Check out the full article on the BBC site here.
