Last summer saw the group headline All Points East 2022 in Victoria Park, east London. More recently, Gorillaz played at this year’s Coachella where they were joined onstage by the likes of Thundercat and De La Soul.
Albarn and co returned to the festival the following weekend, with that performance including special guests such as Little Simz and Bad Bunny.
This month, the frontman reunited onstage with Blur for some intimate UK warm-up gigs ahead of the Britpop band’s two huge concerts at Wembley Stadium in July.
Blur are also set to release a new album called ‘The Ballad Of Darren’ on July 21 via Parlophone (pre-order here). Produced by James Ford (Arctic Monkeys, Foals, Depeche Mode), the record will feature the recent single ‘The Narcissist’.
