Damon Albarn Hopes to Release iPad-Made Gorillaz Record Before Christmas

Text

In a recent interview with the_NME_, Damon Albarn revealed that a new Gorillaz album will be headed our way before the end of the year.

Albarn took an unorthodox approach to recording the follow-up to Plastic Beach, creating it entirely on his iPad. “I’ve made it on an iPad—I hope I’ll be making the first record on an iPad,” he said. “I fell in love with my iPad as soon as I got it, so I’ve made a completely different kind of record.”

Sounds like Apple just found their latest celebrity endorsement! Albarn also told the Guardian that the as-yet-untitled album features a strong American influence.

“It sounds like an English voice that has been put through the vocoder of America,” he said. “More American-sounding than Blur … I’m going to try and put it out before Christmas.”
