Reports suggest new album due in 2016...

Perhaps the first - and most successful - multimedia pop project, Gorillaz shuddered to a halt in 2011.

The relationship between Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett seemed to have crumbled, with Albarn left to work on a typically broad range of projects.

Over the weekend, though, reports emerged that new Gorillaz material could be incoming. Damon Albarn spoke to the Sydney Morning Herald, revealing that he was working on a series of albums.

According to the outlet, the British artist is "currently writing a West End theatre musical adaptation of a children's book, is in the process of reactivating Gorillaz for a 2016 release and is trying to find time to record a new The Good, the Bad & The Queen album, which he says is fully written."

Hmm... curious.

As for Blur, don't hold your breath in anticipation of fresh releases. "I would imagine there's some kind of future," he said, "but at the moment there's no time for the future – only the present. Who knows? I'm reluctant to say anything, because if I do, it just gets taken out of context and then I'm accused of being a wind-up."
