The last release from Gorillaz was 2011's The Fall. In summer 2016, news surfaced that Gorillaz's long-awaited comeback album would be given a 2017 release, via a fan-run Instagram account GorillazNorthAmerica, who apparently received the news directly from band co-creator Jamie Hewlett.
Last fall, Gorillaz shared “The Book of Noodle,” posted on the band's Twitter. The series of videos focuses on Gorillaz guitarist Noodle and her battle with shapeshifter, Mazuu. Check out those teaser videos here.
