Jamie Hewlitt, the artist for cartoon band Gorillaz, shared Instagram videos of himself with Damon Albarn in the studio back in April – but the 2016 release date for new music he'd promised earlier was not to be. To tide fans over, there was a 10-chapter multimedia story "The Book of Noodle," about the band's fictional guitarist, along with two Soundcloud mixes indicating the music that had influenced the upcoming album. "We actually sat down with Damon two weeks ago and he played us some of the new Gorillaz album, and it sounds amazing," Posdnous of De La Soul told the Guardian in August. "He played us a track that he wants us to get off on his album, so we got to get in the studio and put that down." In that same interview, Pos revealed another of the album's guests: Snoop Dogg.
