Eddy Grant accuses Gorillaz of song theft

Eddy Grant is considering legal action having noticed similarities between recent Gorillaz single, Stylo, and his 1983 song, Time Warp.

Grant suggested that the keyboard section of the track is lifted from his own, and asserts that Damon Albarn is aware of the similarities. Grant later admitted that he has never met Albarn, despite earlier insisting that the singer “knows that this is a song he has loved…in his club days.”

EMI Publishing, who represent both artists, responded, “This is a private matter between Eddy Grant and Gorillaz, and we’re not intending to make any further comment.”
