The Gorillaz have been teasing their new album for months now with Instagram shenanigans, playlists curated by Noodle and Murdoc, a leaked tracklist, a Demon Days vinyl reissue and even their own goddamn festival.
Yesterday their mysterious band leader Damon Albarn broke the news we’ve all been waiting for: the new record will be called Humanz and it will come your way on April 28th.
