We don’t know what’s come over Damon Albarn, but we love it. Following the recent news of another Gorillaz album in the works, Blur (yes, Blur!) have just announced a new album to be released April 27 — their first in 12 years. Called The Magic Whip, it’ll serve as the follow-up to 2003’s Think Tank, and Albarn says it was recorded in Hong Kong in just five days.
