Gorillaz’ Damon Albarn just confirmed there’s a shit ton of music still up his sleeve

Gorillaz announcements just never stop.

Fans are expecting the next song from Humanz  to be released on April 7, but this week the band have dropped two more surprises.

While Damon Albarn confirms there’s over 40 unreleased Gorillaz songs which didn’t make Humanz, fans in Amsterdam, Berlin and New York can experience the physical world of the virtual band at the Spirit House.

First thing’s first: Gorillaz co-creator Damon Albarn revealed he has 40 to 45  songs worth of music up his sleeve – plenty of material to fuel the band’s future.

In an excerpt from an interview with Zane Lowe, Albarn says he’s confident that he’s got enough music to “stay in the game for at least another 18 months.”

On his radio program, Beats 1, Lowe will premiere a new Gorillaz song, Let Me Out, featuring Pusha T and Mavis Staples.

Let Me Out will be the latest song off their first album in six years,  Humanz, which they teased with a secret live performance for fans in London in March.

Also in March, a potential track list was leaked online revealing a multitude of feature artists including Grace Jones, De La Soul, Danny Brown and a whole lot more. Of these songs, four have already been released and you can listen to them here.

There’s more. If you’re anywhere near New York, Berlin or Amsterdam you’ll be able to experience Humanz come to life in the form of Spirit House, an immersive experience described by Sonos as “Fresh music. Custom artwork. Digital projections” and more. Goddamn.

Humanz will be released on April 28.

Listen to the conversation between Lowe and Albarn below.
