Damon Albarn open to making an album with Noel Gallagher

They were once at each others throats during the infamous Oasis vs Blur Britpop rivalry back in the 90's.

But with over twenty years having now passed, it appears that Noel Gallagher and Damon Albarn's relationship has taken a complete U-Turn, and it's leading them straight into the studio - together.

This week, Damon revealed that making an album with the former Oasis man is a ''distinct possibility'' and that it wouldn't be ruled out. He claims that the pair have spoke about making music together at least once and at some point in the future, it's likely to happen.

Damon and Noel have spoke about making an album
Last year the pair appeared to bury their two decade hatchet when they performed together at a Teenage Cancer Trust gig at London's Royal Albert Hall.

Speaking exclusively to NME, the Blur frontman said: "I still see Noel from time to time. We text a bit," Albarn says. When asked if the pair would be making a record together, he replied, "I can imagine that being a very distinct possibility at some point in the future. But, as yet we haven't really talked about it…"

Damon continued: "OK we have a little bit. We're talking. It's not anything to get excited about yet. I mean, he's doing his thing. He's finishing a new record. I've got my record coming out, but the principle of us making music together is something…you know, it would be fair to say, we have discussed it at least once."

Damon Albarn will release his debut solo album 'Everyday Robots' on April 28th and Noel is said to be currently working on a follow-up to 2011's, 'Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds'.
