Damon Albarn Reveals Plans for 2016 Gorillaz Album

Damon Albarn, the man responsible for Gorillaz, Blur and many other acts, once again gives his huge number of devoted fans a reason to get excited. In an interview with the Sydney Morning Herald, Damon tells us that not only is there big plans for the Gorillaz, but the next album for his supergroup the Good, the Bad and the Queen is written and awaiting recording. Excited? I definitely am.

When asked about Blur, Damon responded “I would imagine there’s some kind of future, but at the moment there’s no time for the future – only the present. Who knows? I’m reluctant to say anything, because if I do, it just gets taken out of context and then I’m accused of being a wind-up.”

It’s okay Damon, I’m sure the projects you have in the works will be more than enough to tide us all over until we can hear some more about Blur.

It’s way too early to get excited about the next Gorillaz release, but when listening to their previous work, and knowing that a talent like Damon Albarn is steering the wheel, it’s hard not to. Come listen to one of my favourite albums with me while we wait, I hope he doesn’t take too long.

Gorillaz – Demon Days
