While Damon Albarn has been putting the final touches on his second album, he seems to have also been busy with his two bands: Gorillaz and Blur.

Talking with NME, Albarn says that he has “…been working on carnival-themed music with Gorillaz with a lot of people from west London.”

Albarn added, “We’re really going back to the spirit of the first record.”

As for Blur? Albarn says, “Well, we did have a chat recently, but we haven’t really progressed further than that. We did have an idea though.”

Albarn’s second solo album, The Nearer The Fountain, More Pure The Stream Flows is out in November.
