We previously reported that Damon Albarn had declared both Gorillaz and Blur dead, expressing his intentions to let both projects remain dormant. I bet against this, as did many, aware of Albarn’s potential for changing plans. In an interview with Metro, the singer’s already shedding doubt on his prior certainty, saying, “Some days I feel one way and other days I feel the other. If you don’t see something as a career but an important part of your life, you don’t know how you’re going to feel about it.”
He was more open about the future of Gorillaz, opening, “When Jamie [Hewlett] and I have worked out our differences, I’m sure we’ll make another record. … We’ve been through too much together for it to be that big of a mountain to climb. We’ve just fallen out like mates do sometimes. I’m not the only person to fall out with mates and then make up again– everyone does it.”
There you have it, reason to hold onto some hope for two great musical projects, not that there was really any reason to truly fear.
