Damon Albarn of Gorillaz performs during the 2017 Life is Beautiful Festival on Sept. 24, 2017 in Las Vegas. 

Gorillaz released their highly-anticipated album Humanz back in April, and in the fall the Damon Albarn-helmed project debuted a single titled “Garage Palace.” A recent interview with Jamie Hewlett reveals that we can expect a new Gorillaz album in 2018. “We’re going straight into the album with no break,” Hewlett says. “Usually we have a good five-year break between each album but we decided: ‘You know what? Let’s keep going’ because there’s ideas for a few more albums so we’re going to go straight into that. So that will be all of next year and probably the year beyond that.” Listen below at the 10:20 mark.
