The announcement coincided with the official release of the single New Gold featuring Tame Impala and Brown.
Gorillaz recently debuted the song on stage at the All Points East Festival in London, where they headlined alongside Tame Impala.
During his set, Albarn brought both collaborators out on stage for a surprise performance of the track.
A Gorillaz and Tame Impala collaboration dates back to 2020, and some fans say it never happened.
New Gold follows the release of their previous single, Cracker Island, released earlier this year.
