After releasing their highly anticipated Humanz in 2017, Gorillaz followed with the release of another studio album, The Now Now, in 2018.

Although Gorillaz’ latest album The Now Now was released just this past June, it appears that the animated band is already gearing up to release something new. In a new interview with the Radio FM4 podcast, frontman Damon Albarn revealed the band already has another new album in the works, confirming a revelation Albarn alluded to earlier this year.
“I have another one as well, but I know I’m not gonna be allowed to even think about recording or putting it out this year. In October, after I play in America, I’ll be starting The Good, The Bad & The Queen again…it’s there. If I get the time, or if anyone wants it, it’s there.”
The upcoming LP would be the Gorillaz’ seventh studio album and would follow another release with The Good, The Bad & The Queen — Albarn’s supergroup with the Clash’s Paul Simonon, the Verve’s Simon Tong, and Afrobeat drummer Tony Allen.

He’s on a prolific hot streak, releasing two Gorillaz albums in the span of the last year. Now, Albarn’s made it clear that he has no plans to slow down, either, with the announcement that his supergroup, The Good The Bad & The Queen, will release their long-awaited sophomore album “by the end of the year.”
“I’m on tour in Europe doing festivals, but I’m coming home in between them [to finish the record],” he told Kyle Meredith at Consequence of Sound. “I’m working all weekend doing festivals and then come home Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday — that should be a weekend. But because I’ve stupidly started and want to make this record right, I don’t have any weekends,” Albarn quipped.
The Good, The Bad & The Queen, features a venerable cast of musicians that includes The Clash’s Paul Simonon, The Verve’s Simon Tong, and Fela Kuti drummer Tony Allen. The band released their last and only album back in 2007.

Gorillaz frontman Damon Albarn has confirmed in a new Beats 1 Radio interview with Matt Wilkinson that Del the Funky Homosapien has suffered severe injuries following his fall at the band’s performance from Denmark’s Roskilde Festival on July 7. Albarn confirmed,
“Del is in hospital still in Roskilde. He’s got seven fractured ribs, and he punctured his lung on one side, lacerated it on the other.”
“He’s gonna be fine,” Albarn goes on to say. “It was just a stage fall, and I’ve fallen off stage several times, off stages way higher than that and I’ve been so fortunate. When he fell down, I was looking at him like, come on get up there’s 80,000 people out there and we need to finish. I thought I was going to able to carry the song on. I thought he was going to be okay…. But he really wasn’t.”
The Gorillaz performance was ultimately halted after the incident occurred. Albarn concludes, “It’s an awful, awful thing that I can’t quite believe. I keep playing it through my head.”
