We’ve had glimpses of Gorillaz working on new material over the last few months, and hints that Vic Mensa is involved, but now a solid confirmation and potential release window for the project seems to have been confirmed. After running into co-creator Jamie Hewlett on the street, a fan was given an update on the album that was subsequently posted to the fan page GorillazNorthAmerica. Hewlett said that the “really f*ckin special” album “can’t be rushed” and that we’d have to “wait until 2017” to hear it. We had some concrete news that Gorillaz would return last year, but this is a promising sign that they’re working on what will be a massive comeback. Check out the Instagram post below.

WE GOT JAMIE NEWS! This here is HIM and our friend Linda. JAMIE says new GORILLAZ is special, really fuckin special. Can’t be rushed. 2017, yo. Fuck. So, guys, that Gorilla Fund, we got time. Go shop, take vacation, that shit aint happening this year. BUT its gonna be all that and more. And….Jamie follows us. So….you got something to say to him and don’t wanna get yelled at on his IG by his very serious followers, say it here! HE IS HERE. Watching, reading and digging it. He loves this account and appreciates our repping. #JamieHewlett #JamieSaid #ThoseWords #FuckinAye #Gorillaz #Gorillaz2017 #ThisIsNotOurFace #WeTookThePic #HalfOfUsWasThere #OtherHalfInMontreal #Explanations #DidWeMention #JamieWasMadCool #Animated #Friendly #GangstaToo #HisShow #HisArt #SoCool #Go #IfYouCan
