After finishing the year out with a new Blur album and tour along with the announcement of a 2016 Gorillaz album, Damon Albarn had one more surprise up his sleeve -- a new The Good The Bad & The Queen album.

The British supergroup, consisting of The Clash's Paul Simonon, The Verve's Simon Tong, Nigerian Afrobeat drummer Tony Allen and Albarn himself, released their one and only self-titled debut album back in 2007 and last performed together in 2011, according to Consequence of Sound.

Listening back to the supergroup's album it's striking how similar it is at times to Albarn's first solo effort, 2014's Everyday Robots. The production is heavily ramped up on The Good The Bad & The Queen as compared to the minimalist efforts of Everyday Robots, but the melodies and jarring sounds that cut through the music are surprisingly similar. There will be high expectations for the album given all of these artists have had a lot of time to develop since 2007 and they already made an album back then that holds up today, sounding as if it were made in 2015.

Albarn made the announcement in an interview with The Sun, in which he discussed his work this year writing the lyrics, script and score for the musical "" The production reimagines Lewis Carroll's "Alice in Wonderland" and after making a debut this summer at the Manchester International Festival, the musical is getting a fully produced release at The National Theater in London.

"I'd love to do another musical to be honest with you. I love doing them, it's just brilliant. I love being here," Albarn said in the interview. "It's been a dream since I was a kid. We'd get driven in from Leytonstone and go to the other side of the Embankment and look up at the National Theatre's flashing display."
