If I need to be saved from another Gorillaz x Snoop collaboration, I don't wanna be saved!

Confirmed today by Damon in Reprezent Radio, the song is Hollywood (played once or twice for some lucky folks at one of the Gorillaz soundchecks), feat. Snoop and Jamie Principle.

GORILLAZ: New Album Pending?

Post by stephen » 05 Mar 2018, 14:44

Apologies if not appropriate but thought this warrants a new thread (delete it necessary?). I moved your post to the correct thread. -Veikko

There's clearly a Gorillaz material in the works. This was posted the other day:

After a bit of a break and the tour starting again this month it makes me wonder if we'll get some new material fairly soon or do you think it's too early for that?

Does anyone know if they spent the whole of the break in the recording studio? it would make sense if they have. And if so surely they would play some of it in the second half of their tour and festivals.

Maybe it'll play out like 1996 when blur were still touring with the great escape but they were recording the self titled.

Edit: blur played Beetlebum as early as July 1996 is that right? https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/blur/199 ... f0b81.html

I'd be willing to bet that Damon has been 9-5ing it in the studio ever since he got off tour and back from South Africa, and this pic is proof that he's working on more Gorillaz material at Studio 13. Of course, there have already been at least two songs written, as they played Ode to Idaho in Seattle (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4FBcOyX_LGQ" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;) and have apparently soundchecked a new song "Hollywood" a couple of times but have never put it in a setlist.

I'm feeling hopeful for this album cos it seems Damon is involving the touring band, so it won't just be him and his iPad/keyboards. Ode to Idaho is already proof of that. I'm definitely eager to see if they'll play more new material live in their upcoming dates!

This is why I set the thread up as we all know how much of a hard worker Damon is. I'll be keeping a close eye.

He said this like six months ago and then a few days later had a new song in soundcheck, then not long after the band performed it live.

Nothing has happened since.

I thought he was actually going to put something out and we'd know about it by now, but Gorillaz aren't playing many festivals this year so I assume it was another over-talking, under-thought interview from him. He loves saying he'll do this and that but the reality is half of it takes about two years. Absolute scatterbrain.

Yes he is a scatterbrain. Frustrating at times. You have to take everything he says with a pinch of salt but I am fairly confident there is something under way with Gorillaz. His ambition probably gets the better of him sometimes.

Damon has a history of springtime releases, so here's hoping...

I've always thought the new album would be released April /May time. And hopefully TGTB&TQ part 2 in March 2019.

I don't really mind when it's released, as long as it happens soon so Damon can get back to making good music with TGTB&TQ.
