Damon Albarn Getting Ready for New Gorillaz Album Recording

After Jamie Hewlett launched the 2015 2D versions of Murdoc, Noodle and Russel on Instagram  it immediately started speculations that Gorillaz is going to release a new album.
And lo and behold, Damon Albarn, who is in tour with his other band Blur, confirmed that they are definitely gearing up for a Gorillaz new album.
While in Australia for his tour, Albarn revealed to ABC News that they are actually preparing for the recording, which will most likely going to happen next month.
"I'm starting recording in September for a new Gorillaz record," Albarn admitted. "I've just been really, really busy so I haven't had a chance."
Moreover, Albarn is very excited to go back in the studio and work on new music for Gorillaz.
"I'd love to just get back in to that routine of being at home and coming to the studio five days a week."

He however did not mention about the new album's release date, but there are speculations claiming that it will most likely going to happen next year.
In addition to the new Gorillaz album, Damon Albarn also talked about his other band, Blur.
"I would imagine there's some kind of future, but at the moment there's no time for the future - only the present," he said of Blur's future in an interview with The Sydney Morning Herald. "Who knows? I'm reluctant to say anything [about Blur], because if I do, it just gets taken out of context and then I'm accused of being a wind-up."
And while the new Gorillaz album has been well thought of, Albarn confessed that Blur's "The Magic Whip" album on the other hand was made spontaneously after the band took a break.
"It was very easy because we did it over a period of five days in Hong Kong," Albarn said.
"And we didn't tell anyone, didn't have any sort of agenda really, we just jammed.
"So it was a very pleasurable and fluid session."
