Gorillaz left the Internet reeling this morning after revealing a multimedia cartoon called, The Book Of Noodle, across their Instagram. The cartoon features brand new music and tells the story of Gorillaz guitarist, Noodle, following an “attack on Plastic Beach“—the band’s third album—as she defeats a shapeshifter named Mazzuu. The narrator reads, “Finding a shapeshifter is like looking for a beard at an Arcade Fire concert.”

Hardcore fans have spent the entire day guessing what The Book Of Noodle means for the band’s future, though a fourth studio album will likely drop sometime in 2017. Last April, Gorillaz creator, Jamie Hewlett, shared footage of him and co-creator Damon Albarn in the studio, and both Snoop Dogg and De La Soul have been confirmed as collaborators on the record.
Until more details surface, revisit one of 2005’s strongest singles, “Feel Good Inc.”
