Damon Albarn has told a fan that the new Gorillaz album is finished.
The long-awaited ‘Plastic Beach’ follow-up is set to land later this year, with Albarn adding that a tour is in the works.
The news comes via Gorillaz fan and music blogger Jack Winstanley, who ran into the Gorillaz co-creator and tweeted quotes from Albarn on the upcoming release.
Gorillaz dropped their first new music in four years, 'Hallelujah Money', back in January, featuring vocals from 2015 Mercury Prize winner Benjamin Clementine.
Check out the tweets from Jack Winstanley.
