He said this like six months ago and then a few days later had a new song in soundcheck, then not long after the band performed it live.

Nothing has happened since.

I thought he was actually going to put something out and we'd know about it by now, but Gorillaz aren't playing many festivals this year so I assume it was another over-talking, under-thought interview from him. He loves saying he'll do this and that but the reality is half of it takes about two years. Absolute scatterbrain.

Yes he is a scatterbrain. Frustrating at times. You have to take everything he says with a pinch of salt but I am fairly confident there is something under way with Gorillaz. His ambition probably gets the better of him sometimes.

Damon has a history of springtime releases, so here's hoping...

I've always thought the new album would be released April /May time. And hopefully TGTB&TQ part 2 in March 2019.

I don't really mind when it's released, as long as it happens soon so Damon can get back to making good music with TGTB&TQ.

Hard to tell what it's going to be like as a song from that quality.

So rumor has it that Damon said the album COULD come out this week (for his bday on Friday, perhaps?), that he has said 2D is on every track, and Hollywood is the ONLY one with collaborators, and that it’s “much better than Humanz”… again, this is just reportedly what he told Chilean fans, but… HYPE

I'm not too sure about release dates, but I know other things about the record, and I won't say who told me, but I was told exactly that by a good friend of Gorillaz, weeks before Damon confirmed it at the show last night. The very first thing the person told me was that it was much better than Humanz, and it was 95% 2D's album, and that it had the least amount of collaborations on any Gorillaz album. The only track with a collaboration are Hollywood, and one other possible collaboration with someone else (who I will not name).

A few other fairly interesting things happening this phase that I won't say. Just expect to be surprised by something fairly big that's coming to the lore.

great info Jordan!! I'm glad it has a soul-funk vibe, damon's voice fits so well these kind of songs (ghost ship, go back, etc)
