Last summer, about five years after the release of the group’s last studio album Plastic Beach, Gorillaz announced they would be recording a new album. The English virtual band’s Damon Albarn took to ABC News to make the announcement that the process of recording was shortly underway. They’ve been relatively quiet about it, up until recently when Albarn’s collaborator Jamie Hewlette shared a few videos inside the studio. The first gives us a glimpse of Albarn working with French composer Jean Michel-Jarre, Twilite Tone and Liam Bailey surrounded by all kinds of gear and synths. The second footage is just Twilite and Bailey messing around, but it’s important to note that a since-deleted post mentioned that Massive Attack had also visited the studio. Although there is no music in either clips to let us know what we can expect, they are still very real reminders that the project is landing in 2016 with a star-studded cast. Stay tuned for more!
