Speaking to Lowe, Albarn said he had "The Now Now" so quickly after & # 39; Humanz & # 39 ;, he had "something nice to play" at Gorillaz Tour Dates this summer. "I sing, I sing like that," he explained. "It's very in the world of 2D, but it came out and it sings very expressively, I feel good about it, I feel really, very good." He also described it as "emotional" and "summer" record ,
Asked if there are any larger collaborations on the new album Albarn said: No, there is not really, because I wrote most of it on tour in America. Snoop [Dogg] is because we were in LA and Jamie [Principle] because he was on the tour. And then, by chance, I thought of George Benson, and that was it. There is nothing else. "
Albarn also revealed that the album was produced by James Ford, who worked with Arctic Monkeys, Haim, and Florence + The Machine," I've never worked with him before, but we got along immediately, "he said Gorillaz leader. "I really enjoyed working with him. I would like to work with him again.
