Damon Albarn Says Gorillaz Will Record Again in September
Between touring behind Blur's new album The Magic Whip and his 2014 solo album Everyday Robots, as well as writing the music for an Alice in Wonderland-inspired musical, Damon Albarn has had an active past couple years. Soon he'll add another item to his plate: He announced this morning (July 16) that one of his most popular projects, Gorillaz, will start working on new material in September.
In an interview with Australia’s ABC 7:30, Albarn said:
I’m starting recording in September for a new Gorillaz record. I’ve just been really, really busy so I haven’t had a chance. I’d love to just get back in to that routine of being at home and coming to the studio five days a week.
Albarn also spoke about his impressive productivity — on top of the aforementioned projects, he has also released material as the Good, the Bad and the Queen, and worked on film soundtracks — saying that being on a regular schedule is how he works most efficiently:
It's very easy, it's the easiest way to work. I don't like working at night. I sort of down tools at five-thirty, six o'clock and leave the studio. I never work the weekends and I never work the month of August... but, you know, I get a lot done, five days a week, so that probably accounts for my output.
