After six years of being inactive Gorillaz have announced a new album titled Humanz. Over the past few months they have been teasing fans with singles. The first single to release was "Hallelujah Money," in January. Humanz is set to release this April 28th and if you are excited for the upcoming album release their are a few songs you may want to check out!
The band has relased "Saturn Barz," "Andromeda," "We Got The Power," and "Ascension." The normal version of Humanz will feature 14 tracks while the deluxe will boast 5 bonus cuts. The new singles have a blurry dark club vibe. It meshes sounds that create new sensations for the ear.
The album was written before Donald Trump was elected president and has now taken on a new meaning for many listeners adding a political charge to many of the tracks. Albarn, the creator of the Gorillaz, says ,"I suppose we were imagining the idea of Donald Trump. It’s not about Donald Trump at all. But it was imagining that in a way. That was our dark fantasy, and unfortunately that became our reality.”
