Damon Albarn is set to go on BBC Radio 1 later today to debut at least two new Gorillaz songs. Earlier today, as Pitchfork points out, four new Gorillaz popped up on TIDAL (they weren’t available to actually stream), though they’ve since been removed.
They are: “Ascension” (featuring Vince Staples), “We Got The Power” (featuring Savages’ Jehnny Beth), “Saturnz Barnz” (featuring Popcaan), and “Andromeda” (featuring D.R.A.M.). Those titles match up with the rumored tracklist that was leaked earlier this week.
So we’ll be getting new Gorillaz music today, that’s for sure — just no telling how much! Albarn will appear on BBC Radio 1 at 3:30PM EST.
UPDATE: Gorillaz have updated their Instagram account with an announcement of the album’s title and release date: It’s called Humanz and will be out on 4/28. More details presumably to come!

Gorillaz has finally announced that they're playing a live show - and the date is set for June 10th 2017.
Following the release of new single “Hallelujah Money” in January, Damon Albarn’s Gorillaz have announced their first live show in 7 years. It's called the Demon Dayz festival, which is set to take place at the Dreamland amusement park in Kent, England on June 10th 2017.
No other acts other than the animated hip-hop/electro-pop group have been announced yet.

Damon Albarn recently announced that the new Gorillaz album is finished and that rehearsals are currently underway. The mega-successful cartoon band are currently gearing up to release their first full-length record since 2011’s ‘The Fall’, and last month released the first single – ‘Hallelujah Money’, featuring former Mercury Prize-winner Benjamin Clementine – from the as-yet-untitled album.
No official word has been spread about the possible release date. Jack Winstanley (@_JackWinstanley) posted a series of tweets after meeting the Blur frontman outside the gig venue where he works earlier this week, writing that Albarn had told him that the album is ‘finished’ and that tour preparations are underway.
With this in mind, perhaps a spectulative release date would be sometime within the next 2-3 months- perhaps in May or June. We should be expecting a single to be released earlier so this is great news for fans.
Stay tuned for more news.
