Their newest work has been years in the making. In mid-2014, Albarn said he was working on writing some new music for the group. This came as a surprise, because back in 2012 he and Hewlett went their separate ways, saying future Gorillaz projects were unlikely.
By late 2016, the build-up began to escalate. They posted interactive media stories for each of the characters, got them Instagram accounts and the character Noodle even became an ambassador of Jaguar Racing.
Finally, in January, they released their first new single, “Hallelujah Money” featuring Benjamin Clementine. After that, it was a whirlwind, so we’ll cut to the chase: The new album is titled Humanz and it’s out tomorrow!
Gorillaz’s latest promo for Humanz comes in the form of the single “The Apprentice,” which you can listen to now:
Stay tuned tomorrow–we’ll have more updates on the new album. In the meantime, check out Noodle’s Instagram here.
