Talking to The Sun, it seems the Blur frontman is discounting ever working with the ‘Hello hitmaker.
Talking about the success of Gorillaz’s Demon Days album, Albarn said: “It wasn’t quite Adele but I will never be Adele . . . or ever work with her!”
When the 28-year-old singer’s album came out, Damon labelled it “very middle of the road,” prompting Adele to say she wished she’d never worked with him.
Revealing their studio sessions, he explained: “Adele asked me to work with her and I took the time out for her. And I’m not a producer, so… I don’t know what is happening really. Will she use any of the stuff? I don’t think so. Let’s wait and see. The thing is, she’s very insecure. And she doesn’t need to be, she’s still so young.”
Adele responded by saying: “It ended up being one of those ‘don’t meet your idol’ moments. And the saddest thing was that I was such a big Blur fan growing up. But it was sad, and I regret hanging out with him.”
Adele – who has a four-year-old son Angelo with husband Simon Konecki – explained: “None of it suited my record. He said I was insecure, when I’m the least insecure person I know. “I was asking his opinion about my fears, about coming back with a child involved – because he has a child – and then he calls me insecure!”
