After hiding away for nearly six years, Gorillaz blessed the world with news of a new album. This will be the band’s first album since 2011’s The Fall which shocked fans due to claims that the band’s alleged last tour was Plastic Beach. But Gorillaz have prevailed and Humanz is set to be released on April 28. Fans have been lucky enough to listen to a few tracks from this highly anticipated album.

“Hallelujah Money”, featuring deeply-toned Benjamin Clementine, was the first track to be released from the upcoming album. Fans assumed the song was a political dig at our newest president, Donald Trump. The track was released on the eve of Trump’s inauguration, no coincidence there. Though Humanz is not set to be a political album, it was created during a time when the political climate was all that circulated our nation. The album has been finished since 2016, marking the year of the presidential election, so who knows what other politically fueled tracks remain (if any at all).

The band released four new singles all in one day, March 23: “Saturn Barz”, “We Got The Power”, “Andromeda” and “Ascension”. Along with these new tracks the band revealed new character sketches. Gorillaz would not be Gorillaz without visual elements. The album is set to be a visual album; with each song released a short film is provided. For fans, it’s awesome to see how the characters exist and how their narratives have built over the years.

Humanz will be the rebirth of the Gorillaz and like many fans, I too cannot wait to listen to more of the work.
