Now we know.
Gorillaz have a new album titled The Now Now on the way. The new project, which had been teased for months, is coming on June 29.
Zane Lowe confirmed Wednesday ringleader Damon Albarn will be a guest on his Beats 1 radio show on Thursday. He'll be premiering the first song from the upcoming album, which is the followup to last year's Humanz.
Fans have known a new record would be coming quickly. Back in December, the band's illustrator half Jamie Hewlett revealed he and Albarn had been working on new material.
"Usually we have a good five-year break between each album but we decided, ‘You know what? Let’s keep going,'" Hewlett told German art-book publisher Taschen. "Because there’s ideas for a few more albums, so we’re going to go straight into that. So that will be all of  and probably the year beyond that."
