Damon Albarn isn’t one to stay still for long. Currently, the Blur frontman and Gorillaz mastermind is working on putting together his second solo album. The announcement came from Transgressive Records, who announced that Albarn had signed to the label for the release of his second album.
Albarn released his first solo endeavor, Everyday Robots, seven years ago, with another release from Blur and three Gorillaz albums in the time since. More details for his sophomore solo release, including an album title and release date, are expected to be revealed soon.
In October 2020, Gorillaz released their long-awaited project, Song Machine: Season One: Strange Timez. The nontraditional album featured a long list of collaborations from the likes of slowthai, Skepta, Beck, ScHoolboy Q, St. Vincent, JPEGMAFIA, Elton John, EARTHGANG, and more. Albarn also hinted at the possibility of a future Gorillaz collaboration with Sir Paul McCartney.
