It has just been announced that Damn Albarn and Portishead’s frontwoman, Beth Gibbons, are set to collaborate on a song for the forthcoming JJ Doom album, Key To The Kuffs. JJ Doom is Jneiro Jarel and DOOM and their release is set to surface via Lex Records at an unspecified date in the near future.
It appears that what might have been intended as a surprise on the album has become public knowledge. Jneiro Jarel recently tweeted, “Just did a song with Beth of Portishead and Damon Albarn! I figured I’ll say it since it’s already leaked in press!” Though Albarn and Gibbons’ collaboration has yet to surface, you can take a listen to the album’s first single, “Banished,” below.
