The planet’s most successful virtual act is back.
Gorillaz have taken seven years to follow up on their massive Plastic Beach album, and they’ve definitely got the art of the comeback down pat. The guys that reinvented the definition of a band are releasing their new album, Humanz, on April 28 and have just dropped a six-minute film Saturnz Barz (Spirit House) that promises very, very good things to come.
Directed by Jamie Hewlett, the complex film is a 360 VR dive into their twisted and intricate world, with four tracks featuring from the album—Saturnz Barz (feat. Popcaan) in full, with highlights of Ascension (feat. Vince Staples), Andromeda (feat. D.R.A.M.) and We Got The Power (feat. Jehnny Beth). You’ll want to watch it more than once. In addition to their upcoming album, Gorillaz also recently announced that they’ll be holding their very own Demon Dayz festival in Kent, England this summer. Stay tuned.
