In a recent interview with Spinner, Damon Albarn, he of Blur and Gorillaz fame, revealed that he has at least two more albums worth of material left over from the third Gorillaz album, Plastic Beach. While that doesn’t necessarily mean that there will be two more Gorillaz albums, Albarn just has a bunch of stuff ready to go should he and Jamie Hewlett decide to continue with the project.
“I recorded an awful lot of music for this record, about 80 pieces of music in total,” Albarns says. “So, theoretically there is a part two and part three of ‘Plastic Beach’ if we ever felt motivated to spend another few years finishing it. But because it’s so eclectic, it takes a long time to actually get a picture because we don’t start with a picture or an idea. We start with a very loose idea of ‘Plastic Beach,’ which you know probably means something different to me than it does to [artist] Jamie [Hewlett], but we evolve.”
So there you have it, fans of monkey-centric pan-pop bands, there might be more albums coming from Gorillaz. [Spinner]
