track 06 / 17

The Pink Phantom

Elton John & Gorillaz & 6lack

I got the track from Damon Albarn and loved it straight away. As a piano player, I tend to go all over the place with chord sequences, but Damon has a real gift to write very simple music which I love. And simple was needed considering we recorded it from three different places; I was in London, Damon was in Devon, and 6LACK was in Atlanta. Damon is an incredibly talented artist with one of the most diverse and explorative careers. For me, he's one of the most interesting British musicians. The way he weaves together my vocals with 6LACK's lyrics in this track gives a mix that I haven't really heard before and I found the whole thing fascinating.
