Gorillaz hinge on the relationship between Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett, a relationship which appeared to have snapped apart just before final album 'The Fall'.
Earlier this year, though, signs emerged that the group could yet return. Jamie Hewlett placed new drawings on Instagram, before adding: "Yes Gorillaz Returns".
Speaking to Australian television programme ABC 7.30, the singer said: "I'm starting recording in September for a new Gorillaz record."
"I've just been really, really busy so I haven't had a chance," he continued. "I'd love to just get back in to that routine of being at home and coming to the studio five days a week."
