Damon Albarn has confirmed he is concluding his animated pop act Gorillaz later this year with a feature-length send off.
Rumours had been circulating throughout 2006 as to the band’s demise,
particularly with Albarn focused on his musical work with side project
The Good, The Bad and the Queen, and his return to the new Blur album,
and speaking to BBC Radio last week, the singer/songwriter confirmed an
animated film and accompanying film score would be the band’s swan
“We’re trying to make a film next, starting in September
hopefully,” said Albarn, commenting that they had approached famed
Monty Python animator Terry Gilliam to direct.
When asked about another Gorillaz album, Albarn adds, “It will be a film score. There won’t be another pop record.”
