“When anyone made any reference, I edited it out”, says Damon Albarn

From the glimpses we have received into Gorillaz new album ‘Humanz’, we can tell it is pretty politically charged. Now, Damon Albarn has revealed that he specifically “edited out” any specific references to Donald Trump.

In an interview with Billboard, Albarn stated that Trump was “one of the sources of energy that we meditated on” for Humanz, “when it was like, ‘Ahh, that’s ridiculous, that could never happen.'”

Not wanting “to give the most famous man on Earth any more fame”, Albarn removed any instance of Trump’s name.

“There’s no references to [Trump] on the record – in fact, any time when anyone made any reference, I edited it out,” he said. “I don’t want to give the most famous man on earth any more fame, particularly. He doesn’t need it!”

‘Humanz’ is the fifth album from Gorillaz. The album releases worldwide April 28.
