Damon Albarn & Jamie Hewlett To Team Up With Alan Moore For Opera

Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett have brought in comic book legend Alan Moore for their next joint project, the two previously created Gorillaz and Monkey Journey To The West are set to re-team with the aid of Alan Moore for a next project.

Alan Moore revealed his involvement with the project in a interview with mustardweb(Via DS) saying:
"They came down to Northampton last week because we're planning for me to do the libretto on their next opera project," he explained.

"We've hopefully got Gorillaz on board," he added.
Moore revealed that Albarn had written around 70 songs for the production, which is believed to be even more ambitious than his 2008 opera Monkey: Journey To The West.
