Damon in France 'for the better part of the next two years'

"... he has an undisclosed project that will keep him in France for the better part of the next two years."

Chicago Tribune 5 July 2017 http://www.chicagotribune.com/entertain ... story.html

What's all this about then? :)
He thought of cars and where, where to drive them...

think you're probably right there daii - he hasn't done a theatre thing for, I dunno, at least 18 months :roll: :)

No TGTB&TQ album then? Or tour? Nice. I wish he'd stick to one thing long enough for us to enjoy it.

Yeah, but you can't really expect him to turn down something that may be a once in a lifetime opportunity just because his fans might be a little bit worried. We have all the time in the world for TGTBATQ and new Blur. Just enjoy the ride 8-)

what we know so far

Damon’s agenda:

    -He is preparing a musical based on the Malian epic poem Sundiata Keita. He’s already taking lessons in Bambara, the Malian language.

    -He recently talked with producer Tony Visconti (famed for his work with David Bowie) about working on something — something also involving Paul Simonon.

    -He has an undisclosed project that will keep him in France for the better part of the next two years.

    -And then there’s a forthcoming new album with his band The Good, The Band & The Queen.

I really do hope that he'll do loads of tunes for the Gorillaz TV show. That would be amazing. So glad that it looks like that show is still going full steam ahead, especially since Jamie has recently followed Adult Swim on insta...

It seems that we'll definitely get the GBQ album. He's been working on it for ages, plus he's talking about it more and more. Why wouldn't we? I don't worry about his theatre involvement. With wonder.land we still had a blur album and tour and he still made a Gorillaz album. So the worst that could come from that is we get some nice tunes from another Damon theatre project. There are some songs I adore from Monkey, Dr. Dee, and wonder.land. Worried, I'm not. Curious, I'm always! ;)

the TGTBTQ album will have to come out after April 2018 because here in south america is being rumored that gorillaz will headline lollapalooza (Brasil, Chile, Argentina) in March.
