The making of Gorillaz' The Now Now - comments



Damon Albarn
" On the last record [Humanz], I kind of forgot to include myself. It wasn't intentional. I think we just got so carried away with collaborating... but I suppose this is sort of like a 'reset record'."

" This record was really easy to make. I did it in a month with just James Ford and Remi, and finished it at the end of February."

" It's pretty much just me singing. It's very sort of in the world of 2D. He's kind of come out and singing very expressively. I feel really good about it. [...] I produced the album with James Ford. I've never worked with him before, but we immediately sort of hit it off. He's really fantastic. I really enjoyed working with him and I'd love to work with him again."

" We are working on another Gorillaz album which we're gonna be releasing next year. So we're going straight into the next album with no break. That's gonna be all of next year and probably the year beyond that."

Damon Albarn
" We had a penthouse in Hollywood overlooking downtown L.A. and we did this tune called "Hollywood" with Jamie Principle, who just sang on the balcony in the sunset. And then we called up Snoop Dogg..."

Damon Albarn
" I've got one definitely that I'd like to put out by the end of the year, it's called "Hollywood". I'm singing on it. It could be interesting."

" @DamonAlbarn says he's working with @flumemusic and @MikeWiLLMadeIt. He's also trying to get @Usher in the studio."

Beats 1 tweets about the new Gorillaz album in late October 2017.

Damon Albarn
" I'm recording new music, and I record in every city. I'm staying at a hotel on the beach. It's a corner room with a balcony and a great vista. All day I've seen planes with banners pass by: Puff Daddy, Steve Aoki, Magic City, some bollocks vodka. Just so you know where the inspiration for the lyrics on the next album came from."

Damon Albarn speaks to the crowd at the Miami's III Points festival on 13th October 2017.

Damon Albarn
" I really like the idea of making new music and playing it live almost simultaneously. It will be a more complete record than The Fall but hopefully have that spontaneity."

Damon Albarn in late summer 2017 (source: Q).

Damon Albarn
" I'm just sort of slowly going through all tunes that sort of didn't work out [for Humanz] and finishing them [40 to 45 leftover tracks, including one with Little Simz]."
