Gorillaz member Damon Albarn has apparently told a fan that the band's upcoming album is "finished" and that they've already begun live rehearsals. Last month the group shared "Hallelujah Money" feat. UK singer-songwriter Benjamin Clementine, the first single they had released in six years.
This exciting news surfaced via a series of tweets when a fan named Jack Winstanley intercepted Albarn outside a venue where he works. See below for the tweets:

Gorillaz has yet to confirm any of this, but it's definitely exciting to hear that what we've all been waiting for may be arriving soon. Stay tuned for more details and enjoy!
