No, But Damon hints. Then we speculate. That's normally how it works.

we don't know about when an album might be out - but we do know Damon was recording in May:

"I'm doing another record with the Good the Bad and the Queen. We're doing that in May. That's not GarageBand at all. That's just the four of us [Albarn, ex-Clash bassist Paul Simonon, former Verve keyboard player Simon Tong and Afrobeat drumming legend Tony Allen] playing live, straight on the floor."

You have to take anything he says with a pinch of salt, but it's still exciting.

Tony Visconti is going to be the producer

The Good, The Bad & The Queen with Tony Visconti
Along with Gorillaz, where he creates more from his iPad, Damon Albarn continues to be active with The Good, The Bad & The Queen, a quartet with a more classical approach to writing, where he evolves with Former Clash Paul Simonon, ex-Verve -Simon Tong and drummer Tony Allen. “I do not really distinguish between how to do it on one side or the other,” says Albarn. I like both, I am very flexible in this sense. The supergroup will enter the studio in early September with director Tony Visconti, who is known for his work with David Bowie, among others. https://damonalbarnunofficial.wordpress ... july-2017/

It certainly has potential. I hope all involved can bring something good to fruition. :)

Recording was meant to start at the beginning of this month. God I can't wait to hear this album...

I'm still a little bit skeptical on this. Maybe because I really really REALLY enjoyed the first album (and the gigs).

Damon has dropped quite a lot of hints since April, I won't believe it until I see some actual recording footage. :D .

I can understand the desire for fans to see Graham join in but for me it either Damon+Graham in blur, or not at all.

I'm listening to the first album right now and it's bringing back a lot of memories. I can remember the huge discussion on the old forum when Herculean dropped and we got our first taste of Damon's new band. A fresh, yet traditional, sound. Completely different from Blur and Gorillaz which was a huge plus for me.

I definitely don't want Graham involved either. Damon and Graham are in Blur. The thought of him in TGTB&TQ is, frankly, laughable. I can't believe people even suggested that. People can moan and moan about Simon Tong in Blur all they want but TGTB&TQ isn't Blur, and Simon Tong is an integral member. End of.

Just the names alone make me so excited and hyped up... Damon Albarn, Paul Simonon, Tony Allen, Simon Tong and TONY VISCONTI( if that ends up being true)... It will be such a fresh of breath air compared to Humanz.. More folk and melancholy

I listened to the album last weekend, out side with the breeze and I almost cried. It's such an amazing album, one of Damon's best works.. Top 3 for sure.

Yeah I had the album on yesterday too. If it's even close to that I'd be happy.

Damon should have loads of material to work and a fresh mind seeing as he only made guest appearances with Gorillaz.
