The Britpop feud is definitely over. After the performance at the Teenage Cancer Trust in 2013, Noel himself states that he would be very interested in collaborating with Albarn.
“I was around at his place and he was playing me his album before it came out,” he says with a nonchalant shrug. “It was literally like saying, ‘Let’s go for a drink’. he said, ‘We should do it one day.’ I would be f**king very, very, very interested, but I’m going on tour now for a couple of years, and by the time I get back, he’ll be on tour – so if it ever happens, I don’t know.”
“But turns out he’s a bit of a dude. I thought [Albarn’s solo album Everyday Robots] was great, then I went to see him at the Albert Hall. I thought it was going to be this real intimate kind of thing, and I was amazed at how joyous it all was. It was f**king great, one of the best gigs I’d seen last year. Maybe the best. Funny lad.”
