Damon Albarn Preps Songs from wonder.land, Hits The Studio With Gorillaz
Last year, Damon Albarn wrote the music for wonder.land, a musical inspired by Lewis Carroll’s Alice In Wonderland. Later this month, the soundtrack for it is finally going to be released as songs from wonder.land, and the Blur/Gorillaz frontman has shared three songs from it — “Who Are You,” “Me,” and “Secrets” — and two in-studio clips filmed with the cast putting together two tracks called “Fabulous” and “In Clover.” You can watch and listen to all of them below.
In some recent Gorillaz news: We already have confirmation that we’ll be getting new Gorillaz music this year, but Jamie Hewlitt posted some in-studio footage on Instagram yesterday of himself and Albarn to get everyone even more excited. Recording sessions for the new album apparently took place back in September, so either this footage is really old or things got pushed back/didn’t go according to plan. UPDATE: As a Gorillaz fan account points out, these photos are from this week during a recording session at a French studio.
The songs from wonder.land soundtrack is out 4/29 via Parlophone. No word on when the Gorillaz album is coming out.
