Jamie Hewlett of Gorillaz has confirmed in a recent interview with DIY Magazine that they have begun to work on new content for their 5th studio album being released in 2016. Here is what Jamie had to say below:
“That’s next year. I’m working on it at the moment, and it’s going very well. I’m very excited. I don’t want to say too much about it, but I’m at that phase of experimentation. What I try not to do when I’m working in this creative period, the cooking of the mess, is go to other peoples’ exhibitions and look at other peoples’ work. I close my eyes, and don’t want to know what anyone else is doing. Doing that has kind of ruined the creative process for me in the past, and I don’t want to let that happen again.”
This announcement only gets us more excited for whats to come from Gorillaz as it's been a full five years since we've heard new music from them. Stay tuned for more Gorillaz updates.
