2014 has been a busy year for Damon Albarn, he’s spent most of it touring for his first solo album Everyday Robots.
Damon recently sat down for an interview with The Sydney Morning Herald giving some insight on future endeavors, like reigniting not one but two of his side projects.. Damon is “in the process of reactivating” the animated band, Gorillaz, for a potential 2016 release date, making it their first since their 2011 ipad-recorded LP The Fall.
Damon is also eager to get back into the studio with the Good, the Bad & the Queen, his supergroup with the Clash’s Paul Simonon, the Verve’s Simon Tong and drummer Tony Allen. The album is completely written, it just needs to be recorded.
One project missing seems to be Blur, while Damon has nothing planned with his Britpop band mates, he hasn’t ruled out reuniting with the Parklife crew in the future but did say this: “I would imagine there’s some kind of future but at the moment there’s no time for the future — only the present. Who knows? I’m reluctant to say anything, because if I do, it just gets taken out of context and then I’m accused of being a wind-up.”
Until 2016, the GATRS will have Gorillaz on repeat.. Enjoy one of our favorites.
