The long wait is finally almost over.

Without a new release since the ‘The Fall’ LP (late 2010), according to the words of Gorillaz co-creator Jamie Hewlett, the yet untitled new album will be released next year. Through gorillaz.northamerica Instagram account Hewlett adds that ‘it’s something special, really fuckin’ special and we are all VERY EXCITED ABOUT IT!’

What we already knew is that rapper Vic Mensa, singer/songwriter Liam Bailey, French electronic pioneer. Jean-Michel Jarre and producer Twilite Ton have been hanging out in the studio with Damon Albarn.

So it ‘can’t be rushed.2017, yo!’
