Without a break, the ever present and exciting, Gorillaz, will offer another brand new album in 2018. Their 2018 tour dates start in March, in Mexico.
Gorillaz’s 2017 album Humanz saw the group return with a new album filled with guests including Little Simz, Grace Jones, Vince Staples, and D.R.A.M. The album was the first from Damon Albarn and his animated project since 2010. However, according to artist Jamie Hewlett, a new record will arrive as soon as next year.
“We’re going straight into the album with no break,” Hewlett says. “Usually we have a good five-year break between each album but we decided: ‘You know what? Let’s keep going’ because there’s ideas for a few more albums so we’re going to go straight into that. So that will be all of next year and probably the year beyond that.”
“By the end of 2019, we’re probably gonna say, ‘Let’s have a little break’. Or we’re gonna say, ‘Let’s keep going’,” Hewlett added. “I’m inventing a new [visual] style for the next album, so that in itself is exciting for me, because you say, ‘Alright, I’ve done that. How do I do it next time and how do I make it different?”.
