William Orbit Lashes Out At Damon Albarn

"Let’s put it this way, I wouldn’t care to go back..."
Blur

William Orbit has lashed out at Damon Albarn after sessions with Blur collapsed last year.

Ah, the long, protracted saga of Blur's re-union. Last year, rumours circulated that the band were heading back into the studio, with William Orbit said to be picked to oversee recording sessions.

In a tweet, William Orbit wrote: "I just found out that she (Diawara) has done tracks with Damon A, who I’m in the studio with from Wednesday!"

Just to make things clear, the producer then said to Graham Coxon: "Hi Graham! Loving the guitars you laid down! Vocal session March 3!"

However the sessions then collapsed. Speaking to the NME, William Orbit revealed that he blamed Damon Albarn for the project not working out and claimed that he still hasn't been paid for his time.

"Oh don’t start me on Blur," he said. "Put it this way, I’m not going to work with them again – Damon was really awful. That’s all I’ll say. Let’s put it this way, I wouldn’t care to go back. I wouldn’t be hurrying back to do that album. I didn’t get paid! But, you know, I’m not the first."
