After a massive comeback this year with their fifth album HUMANZ, Damon Albarn and co. have not been resting on their laurels. In an interview with German art-book publisher Taschen, founding member of the band and illustrator Jamie Hewlett confirmed the band's plans maintain the momentum that has built in the past year…
Gorillaz and Little Simz have collaborated on a new track, 'Garage Palace', which Damon Albarn, who leads the virtual band alongside Jamie Hewlett, premiered through Zane Lowe's Beats 1 radio show on Tuesday.
The tune, which sits somewhere between baseline house, UK Funky, and grime, is accompanied by a video made by director Noah Harris, Gorillaz, Simz, and her frequent affiliate, illustrator McKay Felt.
Gorillaz may be working on a new album already, Damon Albarn has revealed in a new interview.
The animated band are currently in the middle of their Humanz world tour, but Albarn says that isn’t stopping his desire to work on a new abum.
“I really like the idea of making new music and playing it live almost simultaneously,” he told Q Magazine. “It will be a more complete record than ‘The Fall’, but hopefully have that spontaneity.”
Gorillaz released their fourth album, ‘The Fall’, as a surprise free download on Christmas Day in 2010.
Kaytranada has remixed a track from Gorillaz latest album 'Humanz', which dropped back in April, featuring a long list of collabs including Mavis Staples and Pusha T, hip-hop legends De La Soul, and Mercury Prize winner Benjamin Clementine.
The track in question — 'Strobelite feat. Pevan Everett' — was already a funky number to begin with, and the the Canadian strips it right back, minimising the vocals yet keeping the irresistable grooves.
Gorillaz’s 2D has dropped a new mix featuring artists that have been a key influence on him. You can listen to it below.
Titled the ‘G-mix’, it features Aphex Twin, synth-pioneer Jean-Michel Jarre, 808 State and many more. It also traverses musical styles from retro-futurism synth music, to electro-clash, punk and 80’s ballads.
Gorillaz also announced their Humanz live tour in May, with dates across the UK and Europe.
Now that Gorillaz collaboration-heavy album 'Humanz' is finally out, the world's most successful virtual band fronted by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett have announced an extensive European and UK tour to support the album's release.
You've got to hand it to Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett — the brains behind virtual band Gorillaz — they've managed to convince the entire world, including Radio 1's Mistajam, that they're actually real.
Adding to the virtual band's allure, Mistajam has just finished interviewing band members 2D and Murdoc online — and thanks to some clever special effects wizardry and acting, the interview comes across as strangely convincing, in a Who Framed Roger Rabbit kind of way.
