Gorillaz’s new album Plastic Beach to feature Mos Def, Snoop Dogg, Lou Reed and more


In a recent interview with The Guardian, British music icon Damon Albarn revealed some very interesting details concerning the long awaited Gorillaz follow-up to the incredible 2005 “Demon Days.” Apparently, “the LP is nearly finished,” as Damon put it, and will go by the name of “Plastic Beach” (the title came to him after seeing the plastic bottle-littered beach in front of his home in Devon). He goes on to add that the new album reflects “dystopian, British melancholia” while also stating it’s “the most pop record I ever made.” I don’t know about you, but this sounds incredibly exciting, but wait till you hear the guest list  – soul legend Bobby Womack, The Bee Gees’ Barry Gibb, Snoop Dogg, Mos Def, The Horrors and the Syrian National Orchestra.

On a related note, Albarn also revealed that he has reunited with Flea and Tony Allen for a completely unrelated new album. The trio had previously collaborated on the Africa Express project.
