What Damon did next


A few days ago, it was the BRIT awards. For those who do not know, this is the British Music Industry Awards, which is largely for and about the industry, rather than artistic merit.

He has collaborated with James Murphy (of LCD Soundsystem) and Andre 3000 (of Outkast) on a new track, being given away free, called ‘Do Ya Thing.’ It’s rather fine…
