British rocker Damon Albarn was caught up in a medical emergency during the recording of the 's latest album - soul legend Bobby Womack passed out in the studio. The frontman enlisted the veteran singer-songwriter's help with the band's third record "", which was released in March.

But he was unaware Womack suffers from diabetes - and was stunned when the "Lookin' for a Love" hitmaker fainted in front of him. Albarn says, "The sessions with Bobby were like nothing I've ever experienced. I told him to improvise. After 45 minutes of amazing singing, he passed out."

"I can't tell you how worrying it is to see Bobby Womack lose consciousness on your watch. It turned out that he's a diabetic," he explained more.
