Morrissey, Sade, Dionne Warwick Turned Down Features On New Gorillaz Album

Gorillaz’s new album, Humanz, comes out in a few weeks, and there’s a million guests on the damn thing, but apparently some artists weren’t game for a collaboration. In a new Q magazine cover story, Damon Albarn reveals a few pairings that didn’t work out: Sade “politely declined,” Morrissey did the same after “an entertaining month-long email exchange,” and Dionne Warwick passed “because the lyrics conflicted with her religious sensibilities.”

In the same story, it’s also revealed that Albarn is working on a new The Good, The Bad, & The Queen album, and he suggests that their Demon Dayz festival is coming to Chicago. Jamie Hewlett also says that he’s been working on a 10-episode Gorillaz television series.

Humanz is out 4/28 via Warner Bros.
