As previously reported by Spinner, Albarn recorded the new Gorillaz record on his iPad while on tour in the US. The intention is to release his efforts as a free download on Christmas Day to members of the band's fanclub.
Entitled 'The Fall', Albarn told US radio station Triple J the origins of the seasonally-titled album 'The Fall.' "I wrote it in October," he explained (via the NME). "I didn't want to call it October because U2 had already used that. Although I like the word October, I like the month, I like the feeling."
As for his plans for next year, Albarn will be turning his attentions to other projects leaving Gorillaz "on the shelf". He explained, "I'm putting it back in a box for a while. Just putting it back on the shelf. I've got other stuff."
Elaborating on the "other stuff", the singer said, "I'm doing a piece for the Manchester International Festival about Elizabethan occult philosophy. It kind of was the end of magic and the beginning of science."
