    It looks like Damon Albarn is in the studio working on the new Gorillaz album. Last year, Albarn promised a new Gorillaz album would be released in 2016 and two videos of him in the studio have been posted on Jamie Hewlett's Instagram. Hewlett is the co-creator, along with Albarn, of the Gorillaz.

    The first video shows Albarn working with with famed French composer Jean Michel-Jarre, producer Twilite Tone, and singer-songwriter Liam Bailey. Unfortunately, the video is silent, but it's clear that all four are hard at work. The second video posted is of Twilite Tone and Liam Bailey singing and dancing around the studio.

    According to Consequence of Sound, "One of France's most celebrated musicians, Jarre is known for pioneering electronic, ambient, and new-age genres. After an extensive period away from music, Jarre recently returned with a pair of Electronica collaborative albums featuring everyone from Tangerine Dream, to Massive Attack, to Hans Zimmer.

    Twilite is a Grammy-nominated producer who's worked extensively with Kanye West, while Bailey penned Chase and Status' hit single "Blind Faith" and has also worked with DJ Fresh and Shy FX."

    Gorillaz last released The Fall back in 2011. There is yet to be any word on a title or a release date for the upcoming record, but hopefully news will be coming soon. In 2015, Albarn teamed up with his old band Blur and put out The Magic Whip.
