Apologies for the hiatus, but Gorillaz’s newest single could be out by next Saturday night. In Damon Albarn's last interview, he had said the band’s new album could be finished in two weeks. It's almost two weeks later, and that may be the case as the band’s fictional guitarist Noodle has teased new music may be out soon.
As NME points out, the character shared an image on Instagram of the eye insignia for Beats 1 show Soulection, which airs Saturday nights, and tagged regular host Gilles Peterson.
The band also shared a new origin story for band member Murdoch. As with The Book Of Noodle and The Book Of Russel, this one follows the story of the band’s bassist from a rusty submarine to a new apartment in West London.
In their typical creative and mysterious humor, the legendary group has used this storyline to prepare fans for a new album, which is expected to drop sometime in 2017. Until then, you can follow the journey of the greatest cartoon band on Earth. Lead singer 2D is expected to get his own "book" next.
Follow it below and keep an eye out this weekend.
