Visconti is also involved with another project from highly prolific Blur and Gorillaz singer Damon Albarn. “In the middle of 2017, I started working with Damon Albarn. I’m working on his The Good, the Bad and the Queen album with Paul Simonon [The Clash], Tony Allen [Fela Kuti] and Simon Tong [The Verve],” Visconti says.
“We’re about two thirds of the way through and taking a break, as Damon is off on a Gorillaz tour, but we will resume in April and it will be probably be out before next Christmas,” he revealed. “It’s a great album and I think people will be very impressed with it.”
“We are working on another Gorillaz album which is going to be released next year, so we’re going straight into the next album with no break, usually we have a good 5 years break but this time we decided to keep going” – Jamie Hewlett
“I’m inventing a new style for the next @gorillaz album, Damon started to send me demos for new songs quite early on and that’s exciting, to hear the new direction” – Jamie Hewlett
