Limmy is already calling it the ‘sound of the summer’.

Gorillaz are returning with a new album entitled The Now Now and it is set for release on the 29th of June, according to information released on what is believed to be their new website,

You can watch a trailer for the new album on the site, but the band haven’t confirmed the legitmacy of the project just yet (even though it is quite evidently the work of Gorillaz).

Co-founder Jamie Hewlett had previously announced that the band would release their next album in 2018 last year, and as you can see below, the website features artwork of what looks like 2-D playing the guitar.

Gorillaz last album, Humanz, came out in April last year to critical acclaim and commercial success and featured as artists as varied as Noel Gallagher, Vince Staples and Pusha T.

Exciting, huh?
