In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Damon Albarn discussed his work on a new Gorillaz record. “I’m in the very early days,” he noted. “So far, it’s really fast, and it’s got quite a lot of energy. I’ve been stuck on piano, somewhere off Broadway, for years now. I want to go somewhere completely opposite of that.”
