Gorillaz have announced that their new album 'Humanz' will be released on Friday 28th April via Parlophone.
Alongside today's announcement, the virtual band led by Damon Albarn has shared a unique Jamie Hewlett-directed animated film, which features four 'Humanz' tracks.
The tracks included in the animated film are ‘Saturnz Barz’ in full, plus highlights of ‘Ascension’, ‘Andromeda’ and ‘We Got The Power’. The animated film will also be released in VR via Google's Daydream in April, too.
The album's tracklist looks to be the same as this week's leak and features collaborations alongside Jehnny Beth (Savages), Danny Brown, Benjamin Clementine, De La Soul, D.R.A.M., Peven Everett, Anthony Hamilton, Grace Jones, Zebra Katz, Kelela, Mavis Staples, Vince Staples, Popcaan, Pusha T, Jamie Principle and Kali Uchis.
The band will be performing the entire album for the first time at a secret London location tomorrow, Friday 24th March. Ticket info can be found here.
The album will be available on the usual formats including CD, vinyl and as a digital download, as well as a 19-track 2-CD Deluxe.
There will also be a limited edition Super Deluxe Vinyl Box Set featuring additional alternative versions of all 14 album tracks.
Full details of dates scheduled for later in the year will be announced soon.
