Albarn revealed that he intends to create the entire album using only the tablet device, which allows users to surf the web, watch high definition movies, send emails and run applications including music editing software.
The Blur frontman expressed his hopes for the new Gorillaz album to NME, saying: "I hope I'll be making the first record on an iPad. I fell in love with my iPad as soon as I got it so I've made a completely different kind of record."
He also said that he is looking to release the record - the follow-up to this year's Plastic Beach - "before Christmas".
Other high-profile acts to have used Apple gadgets in their music-making include New York band Atomic Tom, who used only an iPhone as their instrumentation for their single 'Take Me Out'.
