    Default The Gorillaz Thread

    Gorillaz deserves a proper thread...

    Grrrz...

    New Gorillaz album not likely until 2010

    Manager says Damon Albarn has a 'plethora of tracks' though

    Damon Albarn has enough material for two new Gorillaz albums – but his manager has warned fans not to expect a new release until next year.

    The prolific musician is keeping busy with his animated hip-hop project alongside this year's Blur reunion.

    But his manager Chris Morrison told BBC 6Music that it isn't yet clear when or how they would be released. "He's got a plethora of tracks at the moment," he said. "Whether they all make the light of day or get refined and come down to a normal amount you get on a record of ten to 15 tracks, I can't tell at this point in time. It's far too early in the stage of what we are doing."

    Morrison said that he did not want to rush Albarn with the creative process. "It'll come round when it's ready and when it's been finished and when he's happy with what he's done," he said. "There is no point putting art around schedules, you put schedules round art and what you need first of all is Damon's music.

    "The plan for the new Gorillaz album is we'll wait until Damon's finished recording it. The thing is, it's formulating at the moment and it's going to be out in about a year's time, I hope. I'm probably pre-empting something I'll get shouted at for."

    Gorillaz' last album, 'Demon Days', was released in May 2005.

    I hope we get a tour too.

    Fucking Blur. The new album being pushed back is all their fault for getting back together.

    Ahh I misread.
    I never really considered Gorillaz to be hip-hop anyway.

    I like how the manager isnt rushing Damon, though. You don't see that too much. I'd prefer a better release next year than a lackluster one coming out next week.

    not sure how deep into discussion they got, but this year i believe word was that they didn't want to play live at coachella...not sure if that will change in the future.

    At least Paul tried, that is all I can really ask for. I hope that the only reason they didn't want to play was because of the Blur reunion and the Gorillaz album not being done.

    Hopefully, that doesn't mean he doesn't want to play live at all anymore. I can see Damon not wanting to do it in a festival setting and keep it to theater shows.

    This is good news. No tour (album) until 2010 means I can save up my money to travel and see them somewhere. I NEED to see Gorillaz.

    That was my initial reaction, but as time went on my opinion changed. Now I think the show was definitely worth seeing and I'd see them again. I guess that's different from it being "good," though. It was just really nice to hear those songs live.

    It was certainly an interesting experience. I saw them twice, and the first time was bizarre because it was a nearly free show and no one had any idea what to expect. The second time was just kind of boring... Their songs are near perfect but just don't seem to translate well live for me.

    I might be in the minority here, especially in this thread, but I really could go the rest of my life without ever hearing "Feel Good Inc." again and die happy.

    Considering the way these lineups have been, I have complete faith that Paul T. will find a way to get this band there next year ($$$)

    I loved their demon days show. I'd happily travel cross country again for gorillaz. 2010 sounds about right. the first two albums where, what, 2000 and 2005?

    side note, thank god gorillaz sound system never made it anywhere near us. god that looks awful.
