Damon Albarn has told BBC’s Radio 2 today that Gorillaz will not release anymore studio albums. The man of many projects said that he is going to compose a score for a Gorillaz movie that will feature the band, and that will be the final Gorillaz record. Rumor has it that Terry Gilliam will be a part of the project and there is a chance that the characters will not play themselves, rather they will be actors playing other characters.
Albarn told Steve Wright from Radio 2, “We’re trying to make a film next, starting in September hopefully. It will be a film score. There won’t be another pop record. When we made the first Gorillaz record, we had no idea it was going to be a pop record. You don’t make records with that in mind. They become that if the public love them.”
Damon commented later in the interview on the on-again/off-again status of Blur saying, “I really don’t know. I think it’s possible that we might be. But I’m not entirely sure we are.”
