Damian Albarn says Adele fallout 'wasn't true'
Blur singer Damon Albarn has claimed his reported feud with Adele "wasn't true" and is an exaggeration of the truth.
Damon Albarn claims his fallout with Adele "wasn't true".
The Blur frontman previously revealed he had worked on Adele's new album '25' but none of his contributions made the cut, leading him to label the LP "very middle of the road" prompting Adele to publicly state she wished she had never agreed to work with him.
But Damon insists the entire episode was fabricated and he has no issue with the 'Hello' hitmaker.
Discussing their apparent feud, he told Time Out London magazine: "It's not even true. It's amazing how people will run with stuff that has no credence whatsoever and turn it into something and then watch the reaction."
Revealing their studio sessions Damon, 47, previously said: "Adele asked me to work with her and I took the time out for her. And I'm not a producer, so ... I don't know what is happening really. Will she use any of the stuff? I don't think so. Let's wait and see. The thing is, she's very insecure. And she doesn't need to be, she's still so young."
Adele, 27, responded to his comments in a recent Rolling Stone interview, saying: "It ended up being one of those 'don't meet your idol' moments. And the saddest thing was that I was such a big Blur fan growing up. But it was sad, and I regret hanging out with him."
Explaining why his material didn't make the final tracklisting of '25', Adele - who has a son Angelo with her partner Simon Konecki - explained: "None of it suited my record. He said I was insecure, when I'm the least insecure person I know.
"I was asking his opinion about my fears, about coming back with a child involved - because he has a child - and then he calls me insecure!"
