Jamie Hewlett posts Gorillaz studio clips – watch

Get a brief glance at Albarn and Hewlett working on album five

Gorillaz co-creator Jamie Hewlett has posted two clips to Instagram that show him in the studio with Damon Albarn.

Hewlett had previously said that “2016 is going to be Gorillaz all year,” confirming the return of the animated project for a fifth album back in October 2015.

Blur man Albarn had also given a little detail on the sound of the new material, describing the follow-up to fourth album ‘The Fall’ in an interview in October. Albarn said:

“I’m in the very early days on a new Gorillaz record. So far, it’s really fast, and it’s got quite a lot of energy. I’ve been stuck on piano, somewhere off Broadway, for years now. I want to go somewhere completely opposite of that.”
