In an interview with The Sydney Morning Herald, Damon Albarn gave some status updates on the various projects he’s involved in. He said that he’s prepping a new Gorillaz album and is “in the process of reactivating” the group for a potential 2016 release date. It would be the first album for the virtual band since 2011’s The Fall. He also said that a new The Good, The Bad & The Queen album is completely written and just needs to be recorded. When asked about Blur, Albarn didn’t have many concrete plans, but did say this: “I would imagine there’s some kind of future,” he says warily, “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.” (Weather permitting, of course.) Read the full article here.
