Gorillaz Are Coming Back With A 2017 Album and We “Feel Good!”

After not releasing an album since their The Singles Collection 2001–2011 back in 2014, it turns out the Gorillaz (known for being shown animated) are back at it again with a new album for 2017! Although this much is true so far, we don’t want to keep our hopes up too high because the news was told to be announced by a fan-run Instagram account (GorillazNorthAmerica) who apparently got the news from the band’s co-creator, Jamie Hewlett.

Some of the fan’s caption stated, “WE GOT JAMIE NEWS! This here is HIM and our friend Linda. JAMIE says new GORILLAZ is special, really f*ckin special. Can’t be rushed. 2017,” along with the fan’s photo with Jamie. (Photo and rest of the caption below.)

But that’s good news right? At least it was from a reasonable source. Hewlett was known for confirming the group’s return in January of 2015, but it looks like that’s going to take a little longer. Although we have to wait another two years, we have no complaints!

Hi! I'm Mel. I graduated with a BA in print journalism with music management as my minor. I loved music since I was a kid because it was always a way my family and I bonded, as well as a way to express myself on my own time as I got older. I’m not a singer and I don’t play an instrument, so my way of being part of the music industry is by getting to write about the music I love in various reviews and through my concert photography. Another goal? To make people smile.
