Published Sep 20, 2016Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett have been hinting at a new Gorillaz album for a while now, and it seems like the expected arrival date of "fairly soon"' is quickly approaching.
The animated outfit unveiled a new Instagram account this morning (September 20), launching the social media profile with a timeline of the band's career. Beginning with posts that reflect on the year 2000, photos and video clips detail the group's evolution from their debut EP and hit singles like "Clint Eastwood," through milestones like attending the Brit Awards, making magazine covers and dropping an album of B-sides, cleverly titled G-Sides.
Peruse a selection of the career-spanning posts below.
Many of the posts direct readers to Gorillaz.com/YouTube, which currently clicks through to a dead link, but insinuates that something could be arriving soon. In the meantime, you can keep an eye on their YouTube profile here.
As previously reported, Gorillaz were slated to hit the studio this month. To date, artists like Snoop Dogg, De La Soul, Jean Michel-Jarre, Twilite Tone, Liam Bailey and Vic Mensa have all been rumoured as guests on the upcoming new material.
