Watch footage of Gorillaz performing ‘Humanz’ for the first time at secret gig in London

Last Friday Gorillaz dropped the details for their long-awaited new album Humanz alongside FOUR new songs featuring collabs with the likes of Vince Staples and D.R.A.M.

To celebrate, the band, led by mastermind Damon Albarn, took to the stage for the first time in five years at a secret gig in London to run through the album in its entirety.

Watch footage of Gorillaz performing ‘Humanz’ for the first time at secret gig in London including guest performances from De La Soul, Pusha T, Danny Brown, Kelela, Savages’, Graham Coxon, and Noel Gallagher.

The crowd of this once-in-a-lifetime show was made up of a relative smattering of lucky fans who crammed into Printworks in London.

There they were treated the an exclusive first listen of Humanz, including guest performances from almost all of the artists who features on the record, including De La Soul, Pusha T, Danny Brown, Kelela, Savages’ Jehnny Beth, Albarn’s Blur bandmate Graham Coxon, and even former rival Noel Gallagher.

In addition to a full performance of the album, Gorillaz performed past favourites including Feel Good Inc. with De La Soul, Clint Eastwood with Del the Funky Homosapien, Don’t Get Lose in Heaven, and Demon Days.

Suffice to say we’re pretty jealous of those who managed to get in.
