Some feel good news to end your Memorial Day weekend: Gorillaz will indeed release a new album called The Now Now on June 29th.
The band first teased the release of its sixth album with a newly launched website, TheNowNow.tv. The website features a teaser video in which Gorillaz’s own 2-D can be seen sitting with a guitar. Additionally, posters appearing at this weekend’s All Points East Festival in London include the phrase “NO MORE UNICORNS ANYMORE. That same phrase recently appeared in artwork created by Gorillaz co-founder Jamie Hewlett.
Now, Heweltt’s wife, Emma de Caunes, has confirmed the album’s release via her Instagram account.
We’ve reached out to representatives of the band for additional information.
