ct2ywcqxgaajmqpIm Juli meinte Damon Albarn noch so, das nächste Gorillaz-Album wäre „ready soon“, während Jamie Hewlett schon seit Wochen immer wieder neue Gorillaz-Artworks in seine Instagrams postet. Jetzt erzählen sie in einem „Book of Noodle“ die Backstory der virtuellen Gitarristin der Band. Die machen sich anscheinend jetzt richtig warm für Album-Marketing-Storm, dürfte also bald soweit sein. Yay!

Snip vom Rolling Stone:

The tale begins "days after the attack on Plastic Beach" – a reference to the band's 2010 album of the same name – and finds Noodle tracking down and defeating an evil shapeshifter named Mazuu. It's a difficult task, although "finding a shapeshifter is like looking for a beard at an Arcade Fire concert," according to the whimsical series.

The story is told over 10 chapters featuring bizarre, other-worldly visuals. It ends with Noodle chopping off Mazuu's head. After escaping his Sumo bodyguards, she "[packs] herself into a FedEx crate with dried fish, bottled water and a copy of Moby Dick – if she was ever to finish Melville's onerous classic, it was now."
