Gorillaz Detail First Album in Six Years, 'Humanz'

Gorillaz announce the release of their new album Humanz and it has some pretty big collaborators

The Billboard + Twitter Trending 140 chart measures the real-time acceleration of conversation around artists and their music on Twitter. Guest stars aplenty featured on the tracks, including Vince Staples, D.R.A.M., Popcaan and Jehnny Beth - but one that peaked most people's interests doesn't even feature on the tracklist.

A day after Gorillaz outlined their new LP Humanz, Damon Albarn and his all-star troupe debuted the album in its entirety at a secret gig at London's Printworks.

The story was first posted on Billbboard.

The video that came out, titled "Saturnz Barz (Spirit House)", is two-dimensional and shows the digital characters investigating a seemingly haunted house. How will you feel on that night? To go along with this Gorillaz news dump, you can also listen to three other new Humanz songs - "Andromeda" ft.

"We Got the Power" with Jehnny Beth takes nearly a minute to get going, but once the track picks up, it's another fun entry on the album. Jehnny Beth of Savages, Noel Gallagher and Jean Michel Jarre all pile on stage for the pick of the new tracks shared yesterday, and it's a rendition that raises more than a few voices, little more than 24 hours after it was released.

The band are set to play their very own festival this summer, with Demon Dayz festival taking place at Dreamland in Margate.

Speaking with BBC before premiering "Saturnz Barz" yesterday, Albarn said that the album was inspired by a "dark fantasy" he had previous year. Andromeda feat. D.R.A.M. 8.
