Together they recruited Albarn's The Good, The Bad & The Queen bandmate Tony Allen to work on a an album.
Damon Albarn has formed another supergroup - he's teaming up with Red Hot Chili Peppers rocker Flea for a new band. The former Blur frontman is currently working on his fourth studio album with Gorillaz and he also records with his side-project The Good, The Bad & The Queen, featuring musicians Paul Simonon, Simon Tong and Tony Allen.
Now Albarn has formed another group, collaborating with both Allen and Flea - and the trio is already "three-quarters of the way through" its debut album. Albarn tells Spin.com, "(It's) another band with Tony Allen; centered around what he does. But this time it's him and me and Flea from the Chili Peppers and some of my favorite African musicians will be involved also."
