A source told The Mirror Albarn had been out drinking and caught a cab home. He left a laptop in the cab with new Gorillaz songs on it from the still to be announced album.
“It was a disaster. Damon oversees everything and, with Gorillaz, it’s not just audio – it’s the expensive visuals as well. The laptop’s contents are priceless,” the source said.
“It’s a really personal project because the album is very politically charged. A lot of his opinions on Brexit filter through it.”
The taxi driver returned the laptop to Albarn so we’re not going to get the album just yet but it’s apparently set for release as early as next month.
Gorillaz only released their last album Humanz last year. We waited seven years for Humanz but it seems Albarn is giving us another much sooner this time around.
