Hard to tell what it's going to be like as a song from that quality.

So rumor has it that Damon said the album COULD come out this week (for his bday on Friday, perhaps?), that he has said 2D is on every track, and Hollywood is the ONLY one with collaborators, and that it’s “much better than Humanz”… again, this is just reportedly what he told Chilean fans, but… HYPE

I'm not too sure about release dates, but I know other things about the record, and I won't say who told me, but I was told exactly that by a good friend of Gorillaz, weeks before Damon confirmed it at the show last night. The very first thing the person told me was that it was much better than Humanz, and it was 95% 2D's album, and that it had the least amount of collaborations on any Gorillaz album. The only track with a collaboration are Hollywood, and one other possible collaboration with someone else (who I will not name).

A few other fairly interesting things happening this phase that I won't say. Just expect to be surprised by something fairly big that's coming to the lore.

great info Jordan!! I'm glad it has a soul-funk vibe, damon's voice fits so well these kind of songs (ghost ship, go back, etc)

I'm also very excited by your news Jordan and so curious... These titles: Hollywood, Ode to Idaho, now Kansas - will we get an album about the US?

I will be waiting ever so excitedly for tomorrow... woo! Jamie has posted quite a few sketches that look like storyboards over the past couple of months. I'm hoping we'll get a video tomorrow with the single!

Somewhat conflicted on this tbh.

I actually enjoyed Humanz and thought it was a good album - not Damon's absolute finest, but pretty bloody good as a whole. That said I've not been particularly impressed by Idaho, Hollywood, Garage Palace or the other one that was Damon on a piano earlier in the Humanz promotion. By the same token, I was far from impressed with Hallelujah Money and 2 of the other 4 early Humanz releases, but they worked in the context of the album as a whole.

Lot of dithering uncertainties there obviously, but at this stage i'm somewhat ambivalent about another Gorillaz project. That said I am very excited for new TGTBTQ and I guess that'll open up the Blur question for 2019/20 - although it does seem they are not an active consideration for Damon

A 95% damon albarn gorillaz album sounds crazy...first thought is of the fall album but obviously this sounds more polished.

I'll try not to be too critical because I'm not the biggest fan of Humanz even though there's a few tracks on there that have grown on me.

95% 2D? That's my kind of Gorillaz album. Really excited for this now, I just hope it's better musically than The Fall.

Apparently he’s claimed it’s not at all similar to The Fall, but a full fledged album. Denholm said on instagram it was a fully new phase. And apparently it’ll have actual instruments on it, which I guess is why we saw the live band going into the studio last month at 13. I wonder if we’ll be getting anything by the end of the day… I hope!!

A fully fledged album with more REAL instruments? I'm liking the sound of that.
