For the last several months, Damon Albarn has been holed up in the studio working on a new Gorillaz album. The initial plan was for a 2016 release — however, according to collaborator Jamie Hewlett, the “really fuckin’ special” album can’t be rushed and won’t be ready until 2017.

Hewlett provided the update to Gorillaz fan page GorillazNorthAmerica.

The as-yet-untitled LP will mark Gorillaz’s fifth full-length release and the follow-up to 2010’s The Fall. While many details about the new album remain secret, we do know Albarn has worked with the likes of legendary French composer Jean Michel-Jarre, producer Twilite Tone, singer-songwriter Liam Bailey, and Chicago rapper Vic Mensa.
