While talking up his debut solo album, Everyday Robots, Albarn revealed that his next record could come from one of his most beloved group projects: Gorillaz.
According to the Herald, Albarn is “in the process of reactivating” the collaborative band for a release aimed at 2016. If that project turns out to be a full LP, it would be the group’s fifth overall and first since 2011’s The Fall.
If Albarn’s most recent comments are to be believed, times have certainly changed in Gorillaz’s favor. What’s more, he mentioned that a new The Good, The Bad, & The Queen record is “fully written”, and that he’s just trying to find the time to record it. (That supergroup features The Clash’s Paul Simonon, The Verve’s Simon Tong, and Nigerian drummer Tony Allen.)
