Gorillaz Will Reportedly Release a New Album in 2016


Singer Damon Albarn and artist Jamie Hewlett have both hinted at new music from Gorillaz next year, and Hewlett has disclosed new details in an interview with DIY. Asked about a new Gorillaz album, Hewlett replied, "That’s next year. I’m working on it at the moment, and it’s going very well. I’m very excited. I don’t want to say too much about it, but I’m at that phase of experimentation." He added, "What I try not to do when I’m working in this creative period, the cooking of the mess, is go to other peoples’ exhibitions and look at other peoples’ work. I close my eyes, and don’t want to know what anyone else is doing. Doing that has kind of ruined the creative process for me in the past, and I don’t want to let that happen again." The last commercial album from Gorillaz, Plastic Beach, was released in 2010, followed by The Fall, a free download for the group's fan club in 2011. Stay tuned for new developments.
