Damon Albarn Recording New Gorillaz Album In September

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.
