Damon Albarn recalled in the book Isle of Noises
by Daniel Rachel: "When we did 'Some Kind Of Nature' for Gorillaz, Lou Reed met me in the morning at the studio. We talked it over. He got in a cab, went uptown, did something, came back downtown, got out of the cab and did the thing. He'd written it in the cab journey up and down: a very Lou Reed, New York thing to do."
