William tweeted about Malian artist Fatoumata Diawara saying: " I just found out that she has done tracks with Damon A, who I'm in the studio with from Wednesday!"

Later he tweeted to Graham: "Loving the guitars you laid down. Vocal sesh Mar 3."

William produced's Madonna's album Ray Of Light and previously worked with Blur on their album 13.

The Sun quoted him as saying: "Was at Damon Albarn's studio today.
