A project named after our hulking primate cousins may be the first ever to create an album using an iPad.

Damon Albarn of Gorillaz is hard at work on the follow up to “Plastic Beach” using Apple’s magical computer tablet.

“I’ve made it on an iPad – I hope I’ll be making the first record on an iPad,” Albarn told NME. “I fell in love with my iPad as soon as I got it, so I’ve made a completely different kind of record.”

He hopes it’ll be ready before Christmas 2010. If so, it may be the first professional album made on  an iPad. No mentions of what software he’s using — details to come.
