Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett's virtual band Gorillaz have been edging towards a release date for their fifth full-length release for well over a year now. The follow-up to 2011's The Fall has been teased, promised, and speculated about ever since Albarn told an Australian TV station in 2015 that the process was getting started. Since then, Noodle has blessed us with a mix of "kick-ass women" and the band dropped their first new song in six years, "Hallelujah Money," back in January.
Today, FACT Magazine reported that the titles of nineteen tracks, six interludes, and an introduction have been uploaded to the Phonographic Performance Limited's website, offering details on the album's guest spots. Though it's unclear how many of the tracks will make it onto the record in its final form, the lineup is exciting. Danny Brown, Vince Staples, D.R.A.M., Grace Jones, Pusha T, De La Soul, Anthony Hamilton, and Savages' Jehnny Beth are all listed. Here's everything that's been registered (but, we stress, unconfirmed) so far.
