Gorillaz are working on a follow-up on to their "Humanz" album.
Gorillaz released their fifth studio album Humanz in April and it was quite the treat for fans since their last release was in 2010. Their latest 20-track project boasted features from Little Simz, Pusha T, Danny Brown, Vince Staples, and D.R.A.M. to name a few.
One of the leads of the musical crew, Jamie Hewlett, recently revealed that another seven years will not go by before we hear more music, but rather less since they are planning on releasing music next year.
"We are working on another Gorillaz album which is going to be released next year,” Jamie sai during an interview with TASCHEN. “So we’re going straight into the next album with no break, usually we have a good 5 years break but this time we decided to keep going.” He further explains how the music his bandmate Damon Albarn has been sending him represents a "new direction" for the group.
"Damon started to send me demos for new songs quite early on and that’s exciting, to hear the new direction," he adds.
Humanz is nominated at the 2018 Grammys for Best Alternative Music Album. Are you guys Gorillaz fans?
