Damon Albarn has said that he could release a new Gorillaz album "next week".

In this week's NME, which is on newsstands from today (April 9) and available digitally, Albarn says a new Gorillaz album will "definitely happen in the future".

"I can definitely see another Gorillaz-esque record at some point, yeah," says Albarn. "That will almost definitely happen. I could put a Gorillaz record out next week; I've got enough stuff I haven't finished."

Speaking about his relationship with artist Jamie Hewlett, Albarn says the pair's well publicised fall-out has helped their relationship in the long term. "There are points in every relationship where they fall out with people that they're close to and then they reconcile, hopefully, and actually, you know the relationship's probably in a healthier place as a result of that," he said.

As previously reported, elsewhere in the interview Albarn reveals that him making an album with Noel Gallagher is a "distinct possibility" in future.

Damon Albarn will release his debut solo album 'Everyday Robots' on April 28.
