Gorillaz Are Developing Animated TV Show; Explain Title of New Album
As the Gorillaz prepare to release their new project, Humanz, the duo - frontman Damon Albarn and animator Jamie Hewlett - talked with Q Magazine about various projects they have in the works.
In the interview, Hewlett revealed they are working on a 10-episode Gorillaz television show. However, details about the show weren't divulged.
Elsewhere in the interview, Albarn said that the Humanz album is a response to a Trump presidency.
“I told everyone to imagine you’re in America after the inauguration,” Albarn told Q, “and it’s the worst-case scenario: how would you feel that night? Let’s make a party record about the world going f---ing nuts.”
Although much of the album was recorded before Trump won the election, it's now become a prophetic political statement for the group.
“Humanz is not a political statement about Trump - it’s about a world in which he could get elected," said Hewlett. "Where are we as a race? Why haven’t we grown out of this? Putting the Z on the end is not a hip-hop statement, it’s more like an android Z. Are we human beings or just humanz? What the f--- is wrong with us?”
