What would a collaboration between Billie Eilish and Damon Albarn sound like?

According to the Gorillaz and Blur legend, it could be “babbling brook folk or dark satanic metal”.

It seems that we may soon have an actual answer in regard to that question, with Albarn recently teasing that they’ve been trying to work together.

Speaking with Apple Music 1, he confirmed that a studio collab “will” happen at some stage, it’s just a matter of when, due to their respective schedules being so hectic.

“Yeah, I think we keep trying to do it. It’s just a case of schedules,” he said.

Currently touring Australia, Eilish confirmed in Perth last night that tonight’s second show in WA would be her last for 2022, leaving a good three months in which they could collaborate before the end of the year, pending Albarn’s schedule allows.

Back in April, Albarn made an appearance during Eilish’s Coachella headline set, performing Gorillaz’s Feel Good Inc. (with De La Soul) and Eilish’s Getting Older together.

When introducing Albarn, Eilish told the crowd: “This man changed my life in a lot of ways and changed my complete view of what music could be, and what art could be, and what creation could be.

“My first favourite band ever was The Good, The Bad & The Queen when I was six and Blur changed the world and Gorillaz changed the world, and this man is literally a genius, and that’s that.”

The adoration is mutual, with Albarn praising Eilish back in January during an interview with LA Times.

“A really interesting songwriter is Billie Eilish and her brother,” he said. “I’m more attracted to that than to Taylor Swift. It’s just darker — less endlessly upbeat. Way more minor and odd. I think she’s exceptional.”
