Gorillaz Release Multimedia Story “The Book of Noodle”

We’re still waiting for a new Gorillaz album to surface, but the high-concept project has just shared a new multimedia story on social media. Titled “The Book of Noodle,” the yarn stars Gorillaz’s animated guitarist and keyboardist Noodle, and follows her in the “days after the attack on Plastic Beach,” which is a reference to the band’s 2010 album, Plastic Beach. In the interest of not spoiling the plot, we won’t get into the details of “The Book of Noodle,” but suffice to say it’s a tale involving crime, a shapeshifter, a way-too-easy dig at Arcade Fire fans, and a blood-soaked carpet. Read the entire thing below.

“The Book of Noodle” comes after a few weeks of Gorillaz being surprisingly active on the internet. Recently, the Damon Albarn-fronted venture started an Instagram account and relaunched its website. Regarding the band’s upcoming fifth album: Still no specifics, aside from a likely 2017 release date and confirmed collaborations with De La Soul and Snoop Dogg.
