Following the release of Humanz from earlier this year, we may be in store for a new Gorillaz project sooner rather than later. While the band is currently on a world tour, lead singer Damon Albarn has revealed that he’d like to release another “surprise” album, similar to The Fall from back in 2010, which arrived after just a five-day heads up.
“I really like the idea of making new music and playing it live almost simultaneously,” Albarn noted when recently speaking with Q. “It will be a more complete record than The Fall, but hopefully have that spontaneity.”
In the meantime, the band still has a number of tour dates to get to, as Damon continued regarding live performances.
“We’ve been discussing ideas for a new kind of live show,” he added. “If we’re going to do more with Gorillaz we don’t want to wait seven years because, y’know, we’re getting on a bit now. We’re excited but we need to get these shows finished first. You never know what’s around the corner.”
“My dream of being able to see holograms of real people onstage is close now. That was the idea at the beginning. We’ve been very patient and we don’t have that long left.”
Always pushing the envelope, be sure to remain on the lookout for what is to come from the Gorillaz.
