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.
