Damon Albarn Hints At Gorillaz Album Without Jamie Hewlett
Damon Albarn has hinted that there could be another Gorillaz album without his partner Jamie Hewlett. Speaking in an interview with Shortlist, Albarn said that nothing would change musically if he went ahead and made a record without Hewlett, but that there would be no cartoon element in the form of Murdoc. He said: "It was very much Jamie [Hewlett] did the visuals and I did the music. The music won't change, so there could be another Gorillaz record tomorrow. It wouldn't necessarily have Murdoc - the cartoon aspect to it - but musically, no, nothing's changed whatsoever." Albarn also denied that Gorillaz was finished as a project, adding that when he and partner Jamie Hewlett reconciled after their recent fallout, they'd make another album. "Jamie wants to do other things and I understand," he said. "But you never know, in a few years he might have a burning desire to draw those pictures again, and as soon as he does that, as far as I'm concerned, there could be another Gorillaz album." Albarn recently backtracked on comments had made suggesting that both Blur and Gorillaz were over. The singer was recently quoted as saying that it is "unlikely" that there will be any more new material from Gorillaz and that Blur's Hyde Park gig this summer might be the band's final show. Thanks for the report to NME.com.
