Damon Albarn's Gorillaz project is nearing the release of a new album. Formerly titled Carousel, the new album is now titled Plastic Bleach and should be released sometime in March of this year.
On posts from Murdoc published via Twitter, an announcement was made on January 15th saying, "Album almost finished. Drinks being mastered. Isolation kicking in. Bucket of Propofol to help me sleep. Happy 2010!!!"
Damon Alburn told The Guardian last year that it's the most pop record he's ever made, meaning it combines pop sensibility and central meloncholy of a ready-made, plastic package.
Guest appearances are all over the map, and supposedly include Lou Reed, Snoop Dogg, Bobby Womack, Barry Gibb, Mos Def, Posdnuos of De La Soul and The Horrors
