Gorillaz latest album 'Plastic Beach' is likely to be the group's last.

The animated band's bassist, Murdoc Niccals, said with the group's third album their work "feels complete" and it could be the last time the collaborative project comes together.

Murdoc - who is a cartoon mouthpiece for project masterminds, former Blur Frontman Damon Albarn and artist Jamie Hewlett - said: "I think it'd be very hard to top this one at the moment. It feels complete... today."

He, however, added: "But every album I enter is made as if it's my first and very last."

'Plastic Beach' sees collaborations from artists including Lou Reed, Snoop Dogg, Bobby Womack and former clash guitarist Mick Jones and rap group De La Soul alongside Damon and others.

Murdoc also said that if he is discontinued he'd like his ashes to be fired into space, or inhaled by Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards.

Murdoc added: "If I ever do die, if I do get a choice I want my ashes ground up with charcoal and sulphur, shoved into a barrel, and then exploded out into the nocturnal sky, among the stars from whence I came. Either that or I'd get Keith Richards to snort them."

Keith famously hinted in an interview that he had mixed his own father's ashes with cocaine and snorted them, a claim he has since denied.

'Plastic Beach' is out now.
