The Gorillaz first new album in six years, Humanz, has just leaked ahead of its April 28th release date.
Has It Leaked has confirmed that the Gorillaz leak is available through Kingdom Leaks at the moment in full quality. The Gorillaz hosted a worldwide listening party today at over five hundred locations. Through their augmented reality app, users were guided by a compass to the nearest virtual boombox (similar to Pokemon Go). Once they got their, fans were able to listen to the album in full. If you haven’t yet visited one of the Gorillaz’ “Spirit Houses” as they are calling them you will have until Sunday to join in on the listening party.
Humanz marks the Gorillaz first new album in six years and the album’s prerelease has been quite extraordinary. In addition to the singles and virtual reality app the Gorillaz have also been utilizing social media to preview the band’s next phase. Just yesterday the band streamed the first ever live interview with animated band members 2D and Murdoch– furthering blending the lines of the Gorillaz’ perceived reality.
Damon Albarn, the man behind the animated band, recently said that he removed all references to Donalad Trump from the album, saying: “Trump’s ascension was one of the sources of energy that we meditated on, when it was like, ‘Ahh, that’s ridiculous, that could never happen… There’s no references to [Trump] on the record – in fact, any time when anyone made any reference, I edited it out. I don’t want to give the most famous man on earth any more fame, particularly. He doesn’t need it!”
Now that Humanz has leaked, the album itself is a very interesting piece of work which definitely furthers the absurd Gorillaz vibe that fans have come to know and love. Humanz also has a huge amount of features, notably from many young artists. Check out the full tracklist and feature list below.
