We already know that a new Gorillaz album is in the works for 2016. What we don’t necessarily know is who’ll be on this round of special guests. Well, not officially anyway.
Jamie Hewett, the artist behind the band’s fictionalized characters has recently been posting new photos of the Gorillaz characters, including one that hinted at a major collaboration.
Hewlett’s most recent post pictures the Starman himself, David Bowie, titled “Bad David.”. As Consequence of Sound reports, this isn’t the first time Bowie and Gorillaz have flirted, after the Thin White Duke’s Hunky Dory album cover was pictured on 2010’s Plastic Beach. Once Bowie saw this he responded on his website saying “next time don’t be shy, feel free to contact us directly ;-).”
While we say for sure whether the collab is happening, watch Bowie and Gorillaz frontman Damon Albarn jam out to “Fashion” in the meantime :
