Here's some good news to brighten up your Tuesday: having talked about the return of Gorillaz earlier in the year (Damon Albarn even said they would be back in the studio by September), Jamie Hewlett has now confirmed the project is returning next year in a new interview with This is Fake DIY: "I'm working on it at the moment, and it's going very well. I'm very excited."

Hewlett hasn't revealed many details about it, though: "I don't want to say too much about it, but I'm at that phase of experimentation. What I try not to do when I'm working in this creative period, the cooking of the mess, is go to other peoples' exhibitions and look at other peoples' work. I close my eyes, and don't want to know what anyone else is doing. Doing that has kind of ruined the creative process for me in the past, and I don't want to let that happen again."

Jamie Hewlett's latest exhibition opens at London's Saatchi Gallery in November.
