"I don't even have to sing in key!" you ain't Willie B pitchfork: "That [long version] was the fun part," Murphy explained. "When André started singing, Damon and I just looked at each other, like, 'Holy shit, we love his voice.' Then Damon sang, and his voice is amazing, too. We'd been working and playing keyboards in the little studio room and, in a weird way, you could forget that Damon has this really distinct voice that's like a part of your history."
Pitchfork: André's vocals on the 12-minute version sound really spontaneous, was that a one-take deal? Damon Albarn: Yeah, you don't repeat that. I was inspired by him, and my opening was a one-take as well. The only problem is I'm not as good at ad-libbing, in the sense of it making sense, so mine's a bit more in tongues.
