The advent of Blur’s new album, The Magic Whip, and the band’s subsequent reunion tour, has been has been one of 2015’s hallmark nostalgia-laced stories, and Damon Albarn seems bent on continuing the streak. While in Australia, Albarn let it slip that he’s going to begin working on a new Gorillaz album as well, which will be their first new record since 2010. Perhaps that’s what this fan’s alleged snippet of a new Gorillaz song was related to? (The clip was hit with a copyright notice, seemingly confirming its legitimacy).
Here’s what Albarn told 7.30 about the project (via ABC):
I’m starting recording in September for a new Gorillaz record. I’ve just been really, really busy so I haven’t had a chance. I’d love to just get back in to that routine of being at home and coming to the studio five days a week.
No arguments here, that sounds like a great lifestyle.
