    Gorillaz's Jamie Hewlett told GorillazNorthAmerica that the band's new album will not be out till 2017. However, according to Jamie the record "is special, really f***in special." Originally, it was rumored that the new album would be out in 2016. The announcement was made via GorillazNorthAmerica's Instagram:

    "WE GOT JAMIE NEWS! This here is HIM and our friend Linda. JAMIE says new GORILLAZ is special, really f***in special. Can't be rushed. 2017, yo. F***. So, guys, that Gorilla Fund, we got time. Go shop, take vacation, that s*** aint happening this year. BUT its gonna be all that and more. And....Jamie follows us. So....you got something to say to him and don't wanna get yelled at on his IG by his very serious followers, say it here! HE IS HERE. Watching, reading and digging it. He loves this account and appreciates our repping."

    Back in April, a pair of videos surfaced showing artists working with Damon Albarn in the studio. The first video showed 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 was of Twilite Tone and Liam Bailey singing and dancing around the studio. In May, Chicago rapper Vic Mensa joined Damon Albarn in the studio, as seen by a photo posted on Instagram.
