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

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.

Oh yeah, there are hundreds of stories online about people discovering Gorillaz through Toonami. It definitely helped. Adult Swim is the best place for a Gorillaz tv show, so I couldn't be more excited to see how that turns out.

I'm all for Gorillaz continuing on into 2018. It would certainly be interesting having them headline SA lolla. Perhaps that means they'll be headlining some major US festivals (Coachella, Bonnaroo, Gov Ball, Lolla?) that many people were hoping they'd headline this year. More tour dates are always welcome for me! And it would make sense for Gorillaz to take up 2018 because that's when the show is supposed to air, so surely that'll be taking a lot of time from Jamie and Damon (if Damon does indeed do a soundtrack of sorts for it.)

perhaps the two years in France was a bit of an 'herring rouge' - the project (ie the TV show) will be put together over two years in France by Jamie, but - as we know - Damon can compose and record anywhere in the world...
