The wait is finally over. Seven years removed from the release of their latest album The Fall, British virtual-group The Gorillaz return with their fifth studio album today called Humanz.
Laced with a whopping 26 records on the deluxe version, the highly anticipated project features guest appearances from an all-star cast, including Danny Brown, De La Soul, Pusha T, Kali Uchis, Kelela, Vince Staples, Jehnny Beth from Savages, D.R.A.M., Popcaan, Jamie Principle, Kilo Kish, Anthony Hamilton, Peven Everett, Grace Jones, Mavis Staples, and many more.
The album takes on an apocalyptic vision for its central theme. It uses the word “Humanz" as the album title because of the disturbing trends the band has observed in modern life (ie: Donald Trump)...
“It’s humanz with a Z, which, simply put, [means] we’re in transition. We’re turning into something else. The album came from this dark fantasy that came into my head the beginning of last year, which was imagining the weirdest, unpredictable thing happening that changes everything about the world.” Damon Albarn says.
Led by the previously heard singles “Saturnz Barz," “Andromeda," "We Got the Power" “Ascension” & “Let Me Out,” fans can now stream the entire body of work via Apple Music. Don't forget to show your support on iTunes.
