We can consider it good news in a sense, the reason being is, yes Gorillaz are working on their fifth album. It was meant to come out in 2016 but Gorillaz co-founder Jamie Hewlett has stated that the record “is special, really fucking special” and therefore it “can’t be rushed“.
Gorillaz fan page stated in their instagram post, “WE GOT JAMIE NEWS! This here is HIM and our friend Linda. JAMIE says new GORILLAZ is special, really fuckin special. Can’t be rushed. 2017, yo. Fuck. So, guys, that Gorilla Fund, we got time. Go shop, take vacation, that shit aint happening this year. BUT its gonna be all that and more. And….Jamie follows us. So….you got something to say to him and don’t wanna get yelled at on his IG by his very serious followers, say it here! HE IS HERE. Watching, reading and digging it. He loves this account and appreciates our repping.“
