It's 2008 all over again, Foals' new album is banging, Bloc Party's latest effort is turning heads, Teh Last Shadow Puppets new album is coming and what's this - Gorillaz's new album too! Jamie Hewlett (who is behind nimations), told DIY Magazine that he’s "shutting myself away" to work on Gorillaz’s fifth album.
"I’m working on it at the moment, and it’s going very well. I’m very excited. I don’t want to say too much about it, but I’m at that phase of experimentation. What I try not to do when I’m working in this creative period, the cooking of the mess, is go to other peoples’ exhibitions and look at other peoples’ work. I close my eyes, and don’t want to know what anyone else is doing. Doing that has kind of ruined the creative process for me in the past, and I don’t want to let that happen again."
