He loves this account and appreciates our repping."
Back in April, a pair of videos surfaced showing artists working with Damon Albarn in the studio. The first video showed Albarn working with with famed French composer Jean Michel-Jarre, producer Twilite Tone, and singer-songwriter Liam Bailey. Unfortunately, the video is silent, but it's clear that all four are hard at work. The second video posted was of Twilite Tone and Liam Bailey singing and dancing around the studio. In May, Chicago rapper Vic Mensa joined Damon Albarn in the studio, as seen by a photo posted on Instagram.
