Damon dropped from Strokes new album

Damon Albarn nearly sang backing vocals on The Strokes' new album but it didn't work out, according to producer Gordon Raphael.

Raphael told Xfm how the Blur singer went into the studio with the New York band.

After The Strokes saw Blur play in New York, they met him and took him back to the studio where he listened to tracks from the new album.

According to Raphael, Albarn commented that as The Strokes rarely use any backing vocals on their tunes, he might be the man to provide some Beatles-style harmonies.

He said: "We let him go out and try for a couple of hours. Julian was taking it really seriously, seeing if he could craft what Damon was doing into something that would make it on the record.

However, the band decided to use the songs without the backing vocals.

Damon said: "Well I guess the songs are just perfect the way they are."
