Billie Eilish brought out Damon Albarn on stage during her headlining set at Coachella last night (April 16). The pair covered Eilish’s Happier Than Ever track ‘Getting Older’ before being joined by De La Soul’s Posdnuos for a rendition of Gorillaz’s 2005 hit ‘Feel Good Inc.’. Earlier in the set, Eilish also brought out Khalid to perform their duet ‘Lovely’. Check out footage from her set below.
Introducing Albarn, Eilish said: “Shut the fuck up and please give a warm welcome to Gorillaz’s Damon Albarn. This is the craziest shit I’ve ever experienced. This man changed my life in a lot of ways and changed my complete view of what music could be and what art could be and what creation could be. My first favorite band ever was the Good, The Bad and the Queen when I was six years old, and Blur changed the world and Gorillaz changed the world and this man is literally a genius.”
In an interview with The New York Times earlier this year, Albarn called Eilish “exceptional” and her songwriting “really interesting” compared to that of Taylor Swift, a comment Swift later responded to on social media by telling him not to discredit her writing.
