Speaking to Billboard, Damon Albarn said he cut out all references to Donald Trump on the forthcoming Gorillaz album, Humanz. “There’s no references to [Trump] on the record -- in fact, any time when anyone made any reference, I edited it out,” he says. “I don’t want to give the most famous man on earth any more fame, particularly. He doesn’t need it!” In the same interview, artist Jamie Hewlett spoke about how he and Albarn reunited the animated band after their massive 2010 tour which saw them take a very long break and not speak to one another for a while. "We went to some party and in a drunken conversation, he said, ‘Do you want to do more Gorillaz?’ And I said ‘Yeah, do you?’ And he said ‘Yeah.’ And I said ‘Right, then.’ That was the end of the conversation.”
