In October 2015, Damon Albarn revealed that both he and Jamie Hewlett are working on a new Gorillaz album. Albarn said: “I’m in the very early days on a new Gorillaz record. So far, it’s really fast, and it’s got quite a lot of energy. I’ve been stuck on piano, somewhere off Broadway, for years now. I want to go somewhere completely opposite of that.”
Welcome to that day.
Gorillaz revealed that they are returning later this year with a new album, titled Humanz, scheduled for release on April 28th, 2017. They also released four new songs — “Saturnz Barz,” “Andromeda,” “Ascension,” and “We Got The Power” — off of their new album that are available to stream on multiple platforms. Humanz is available to preorder from Amazon and the Gorillaz website.
They also released an interactive 360-degree reimagination of their “Saturnz Barz” music video.
