You know that sinking feeling you get when you leave your wallet or phone in the back seat of an uber or taxi? Yeah well imagine how you’d feel if you left behind the unreleased masters of the new friccin’ Gorillaz album…
This is probably how Damon Albarn was feeling the other night when he did exactly that.
Here’s the story: Damon Albarn got on the piss and left the unheard, unreleased masters to the new Gorillaz album in the back of a taxi. That’s one lucky cab driver.
We first heard last year that a new Gorillaz album was dropping this year, though it may now get released a lot sooner than expected.
“It was a disaster. Damon oversees everything and, with Gorillaz, it’s not just audio – it’s the expensive visuals as well. The laptop’s contents are priceless,” an unnamed source told The Mirror.
“It’s a really personal project because the album is very politically charged. A lot of his opinions on Brexit filter through it.”
The taxi driver has since returned the laptop, so we’re all going to have to wait just a little longer until we get a first listen.
So maybe in the future, stay off the sauce when you’re carrying around one of the most anticipated albums of the past few years, eh?
The new album is expected out next month.
