A few months removed from our exclusive premiere of the surprise political single “Hallelujah Money,” the first song in six years from Damon Albarn’s Gorillaz, and the announcement of the virtual band’s first-ever Demon Dayz festival, Gorillaz are gearing up to officially announce their return later today on BBC Radio 1’s MistaJam, with what appears to be the release of four brand new songs.
Earlier today Pitchfork, announced that the listings of four new Gorillaz tracks — the titles and features of which were leaked only a few days ago along with what appears to be the rest of the album’s tracklist — appeared on Tidal.
Though Gorillaz albums almost always have several collabs, these are especially diverse and exciting. The tracks are called, “Ascension,” “We Got the Power,” “Saturnz Barnz,” and “Andromeda,” and feature Vince Staples, Jehnny Beth of Savages, Popcaan, and D.R.A.M., respectively. They’re now here, stream them below.
This follows up the other news that their new album will be called Humanz. It comes out 4/28 and is the band’s first new album since 2010’s Plastic Beach. It comes alongside the news of the band’s own festival Demon Dayz which will take place for the first time this year in England.
