In an interview with Beats 1, Damon Albarn discussed the new Gorillaz album 'The Now Now'
"The last record, I kind of forgot to include myself. It wasn’t intentional. I think we just got so carried away with collaborating... but I suppose this is sort of like a ‘reset record'."
Finally on the feel of the Now Now, Albarn said: ""It's quite hard for me to be sort of optimistic, but I think I’ve managed it on this record. Naturally, I don’t really make happy music, but somehow this record sort of turned out quite happy."
