Damon Albarn details return of Gorillaz and The Good, The Bad And The Queen

In a recent interview with Austrailian newspaper The Sydney Morning Herald, Damon Albarn set the record straight on the unknown future of many of his musical projects, including the return of both Gorillaz and The Good, The Bad & The Queen.

The article explained that Albarn will be "reactivating Gorillaz for a 2016 release" as well as looking for time to record the next The Good, The Bad & The Queen album, which he says has already been fully written.

However, he wasn't so keen on updating us on the future of Blur, saying, "I would imagine there’s some kind of future, but at the moment there’s no time for the future – only the present. Who knows? I’m reluctant to say anything, because if I do, it just gets taken out of context and then I’m accused of being a wind-up."

Damon Albarn had a very public falling out with his Gorillaz collaborator Jamie Hewitt back in 2012, leaving the band on hiatus until now, whereas the supergroup The Good, The Bad & The Queen, consisting of Albarn, The Clash's Paul SImonon, The Verve's Simon Tong and drummer Tony Allen, have so far only produced one studio album from 2007.
