Not to be outdone by Thom Yorke, Gorillaz singer and former Blur frontman, Damon Albarn is creating a supergroup. He's enlisted the services of Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist, Flea, who is also in Yorke's band Atoms for Peace. The group will also feature afro beat drummer Tony Allen, a collaborator on Albarn's other side-project the Good, the Bad, and the Queen. The new project doesn't have a name yet.
This exciting news came during an interview with Stuff, a New Zealand magazine, where the forty-two-year old Albarn talked about other future projects, which include another Gorillaz album that he called "my love letter to America." According to Albarn, the U.S. has made quite an impression on him during the current Gorillaz tour, but he also still finds the country confusing.
Unfortunately, Albarn also shot down any chance of a Blur world tour in the future. After touring with Gorillaz, he says that any sort of tour won't be happening for five to six years because he needs to spend time with his family. There is no word if Albarn has plans to sleep anytime soon.
