Watch Damon Albarn Sing ‘Mr. Tembo’ to the Elephant Who Inspired the Song

In Damon Albarn‘s solo album from last year, Everyday Robots, he included a track called “Mr. Tembo,” which was inspired by a baby elephant he met while visiting Tanzania. Anyway, the Blur frontman recently returned to visit his old friend, now a grown-ass-man elephant, where he acoustically serenaded him with the song. As Stereogum points out, Albarn’s daughter Missy posted the video to her Instagram, where it eventually found its way to YouTube. You can watch the sweet moment below and try to guess whether or not the elephant is digging the one-man show.
