Damon Albarn Plotting New The Good, The Bad, & The Queen LP, Wants Next Gorillaz Album To Tell A Story

Damon Albarn has had a busy year; he’s been working on new Gorillaz material, writing the score for a musical re-imagination of Lewis Carroll’s Alice In Wonderland, and releasing Blur’s long-awaited new album The Magic Whip. To top it all off, Albarn just announced that he’s been working on a new LP with his band The Good, The Bad, & The Queen. In an interview with The Sun, Albarn says that the supergroup (which includes the Clash’s Paul Simonon, The Verve’s Simon Tong and Tony Allen) has been writing new material for a forthcoming LP. He also briefly mentioned that the Gorrillaz’s next album will follow narrative, and Albarn hopes to: “Give it a real story from beginning to end and give each character a real voice and a singing voice as well.”
