The more stories you read about Gorillaz’ return, the more excited you may get. The antsy nature may be at critical mass, and this piece of news probably won’t help: Snoop Digg is going to be featured in the album. Pos of De La Soul (oh, did we mention that epic return?) had this to say about it:
It comes when we feel we’ve got something that would be a great match for an artist. With Damon, it was easy because we love working with him. We’re about to be on the new Gorillaz album. Snoop was also performing on the record when we were over there. He pulled us to the side and said: “Hey man, we’ve never worked together, can we get this going?” Usually the lawyers will say: “You can pay this artist or maybe we can swap?” and then it goes from there.
Knowing that you can’t rush perfection, we’ll wait patiently for this presumptively amazing piece of work to come on 2017. In the meantime, we’ll go read a book or something.
