Back in October of 2014 we previously reported that there was talk of a comeback from our favorite animated group, Gorillaz, which was then later confirmed back in January by long-time collaborator and artist Jamie Hewlett. Now, more details are surfacing and f course, has Damon Albarn playing coy. As he said before, a lot of things that don’t always come to fruition about new work (remember all the Blur rumors which turned out to be true… We see how it is Damon.) Fortunately this time, the Gorillaz mastermind is holding true to his word, as collaborator Jamie Hewlett has confirmed to DIY that sessions are now underway and began in September. “I’m working on it at the moment, and it’s going very well,” he added. “I’m very excited. I don’t want to say too much about it, but I’m at that phase of experimentation. What I try not to do when I’m working in this creative period, the cooking of the mess, is go to other peoples’ exhibitions and look at other peoples’ work. I close my eyes, and don’t want to know what anyone else is doing. Doing that has kind of ruined the creative process for me in the past, and I don’t want to let that happen again.”
In anticipation, Jamie Hewlett has been teasing more new artwork via his Instagram.
