Damon Albarn says Del the Funky Homosapien punctured a lung during the rapper’s Gorillaz show stage fallDel The Funky Homosapien Damon Albarn

Gorillaz frontman Damon Albarn has confirmed in a new Beats 1 Radio interview with Matt Wilkinson that Del the Funky Homosapien has suffered severe injuries following his fall at the band’s performance from Denmark’s Roskilde Festival on July 7. Albarn confirmed,

“Del is in hospital still in Roskilde. He’s got seven fractured ribs, and he punctured his lung on one side, lacerated it on the other.”

“He’s gonna be fine,” Albarn goes on to say. “It was just a stage fall, and I’ve fallen off stage several times, off stages way higher than that and I’ve been so fortunate. When he fell down, I was looking at him like, come on get up there’s 80,000 people out there and we need to finish. I thought I was going to able to carry the song on. I thought he was going to be okay…. But he really wasn’t.”

The Gorillaz performance was ultimately halted after the incident occurred. Albarn concludes, “It’s an awful, awful thing that I can’t quite believe. I keep playing it through my head.”

Godspeed, Del.

Gorillaz are performing their brand new album The Now Now live for the first time ever on the Boiler Room in Tokyo. Announced for Sunday, June 24, Gorillaz will take the stage with a unique combination of atmospheric visuals taken from their stage show.

The album’s full live debut comes after a steady stream of lead up singles, most recently with the introspective, psychedelic “Fire Flies.” Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett’s impending new collection, The Now Now, marks the virtual band’s sixth studio album and will officially be released on June 29 via Parlophone and Warner Bros. Records.

Gorillaz continue album rollout with ‘Fire Flies’

This post was originally published on this site

The Damon Albarn-led Gorillaz continue rollout for The Now Now with the release of their fourth new single, “Fire Flies.”

The mellow slow-burn follows already shared tracks “Sorcererz,” Humility,” and “Lake Zurich.” Severely less danceable than any of the singles shared thus far, “Fire Flies” sees Albarn leaning into his introspective side. It’s the most intimate look at the record yet, a prolonged psychedelic interlude that feels like a funk-infused culmination of the band’s earliest material.

Gorillaz share studio version of sleek, new danceable track ‘Sorcererz’

This post was originally published on this site

Just recently, Gorillaz debuted four new tracks at their first live performance since announcing their forthcoming LP, The Now Now. Now, they’ve shared the studio version of “Sorcererz,” an extremely danceable tune which was premiered at Germany’s Rock im Park.

“Sorcererz” is a warm new take from the group, which seems to rely heavily on the groove that “Humility,” “Lake Zurich,” and alot of their older material rides out. Perhaps, it’s even fair to say this ’80s-inspired take is what could have potentially happened had Albarn, who reportedly turned down the chance to work with Prince, accepted he couldn’t smoke in the studio.
