Damon Albarn’s Everyday Robots had it’s moments, but be honest, there weren’t exactly any songs to rival the Gorillaz’ murky bounce of "Feel Good Inc" or saccharine eco-pop of the Plastic Beach album, were there?
Thankfully, Albarn has just revealed plans to bring back the world’s first animated band alongside co-creator and animator Jamie Hewlitt (news of a big falling out seems to have fallen by the wayside).
After years of claiming Gorillaz and Blur would never see the light of day again, it seems Albarn is having trouble sticking to his guns and he's set about reassembling the cartoon bandits for their long-awaited follow-up to 2010's iPad-recorded album The Fall.
With previous collaborators including Lou Reed, Bobby Womack and Snoop Dogg, now’s the time to start crossing your fingers for the guest spots on The Gorillaz’ fifth LP. Anyone for A$AP Rocky?
Best Gorillaz song?
