Watch Damon Albarn, Del the Funky Homosapien, and Snoop Dogg do ‘Clint Eastwood’
Dan the Automator also joins Gorillaz leader at SXSW show
Though he’s currently promoting his debut solo album Everyday Robots, Damon Albarn took some time at SXSW to celebrate his other projects with some help from hip-hop royalty. During his headlining set at the Fader Fort, the Gorillaz mastermind brought up De La Soul for “Feel Good Inc.” and then joined forces with Del the Funky Homosapien and Dan the Automator for “Clint Eastwood,” the first time all three performed the track together since it came out 13 years ago. Snoop Dogg also showed up to contribute a brand new verse, adding “a little cayenne” to the set, as Albarn put it to the AP.
“What can I say about them? They’re very dear friends of mine,” he said about De La Soul before the show. “But it’s Del The Funky Homosapien I’m most excited about. It is literally the first time that not only have I met him, but he’s going to sing ‘Clint Eastwood.’ It’s actually quite a momentous moment.” Check out the performance above.
