What Will The New Gorillaz Album Be Like in 2018?

Recently, Damon Albarn reportedly caused a scare after he left a laptop containing a master copy of the new Gorillaz album in the back of a taxi. We're all eager to hear that, but it looks like we won't be hearing any of that anytime soon.

Having previously confirmed plans for a new record in 2018, The Mirror reports that the Blur frontman left the laptop in the back of a taxi after he went drinking at London’s Groucho Club.

“It was a disaster. Damon oversees everything and, with Gorillaz, it’s not just audio – it’s the expensive visuals as well. The laptop’s contents are priceless”, a source told NME.  “But after a night at Groucho, Damon accidentally left it in a cab and caused a huge panic.”

The article also claims that the album is strongly inspired by Albarn’s strong anti-Brexit views and will be released next month.


Now, Damon Albarn has been quite politically spoken these few years, with his public condemnation of Donald Trump and Brexit in the months leading up to these events. He has always been one to comment on social life, such as during his Blur days, when he was famous for writing satirical, sarcastic and scarily accurate songs about life- and politics.

Blur's famous "Modern Life Is Rubbish" is a predictor of the current times- people on their headphones, watching TV, advertisements- it's like something out of a Black Mirror, kaftka-esque world. His "Everyday Robots" is a condemnation of technology (or perhaps his lack of tech-skills) but it's really about someone who longs to have a real human connection.

Now, with Gorillaz on the line, what will the new album sound like? Will it be a throwback to the past, where technology is not present? Or will it be even more techno, strange and unusual like their Humanz album?

Who knows- only time will tell.
