Damon Albarn Serenades Baby Elephant

By Alex Brown - 1.9.15

Video footage of Damon Albarn singing 'Mr Tembo' for the real-life elephant that inspired the song has surfaced online.

Albarn wrote the track, which appeared on his debut solo album 'Everyday Robots', about an orphaned baby elephant the singer met while travelling in Tanzania. As Consequence Of Sound reports, Albarn recently returned to Tanzania to meet the elephant – now fully-grown – again, where he serenaded him with the song. Watch the footage below.
