The cartoon troupe’s fifth album has been delayed by Albarn’s myriad other commitments, he explained to Australian TV show ABC 7.30.
“I’m starting recording in September for a new Gorillaz record,” he said. “I’ve just been really, really busy so I haven’t had a chance. I’d love to just get back in to that routine of being at home and coming to the studio five days a week.”
His collaborator Jamie Hewlett confirmed Gorillaz’s return back in January, but what with releasing a new Blur album and unveiling a musical inspired by Alice in Wonderland at the Manchester International Festival this year, Albarn obviously hasn’t got round to it yet.
