April will see the release of Gorillaz new album 'Humanz', it's been seven years since Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett last teamed up to work on the virtual collaboration and it seems like the time away has proved to be incredibly productive. The second video for the release 'Saturnz Barz' has been shot as a 360 degree video as well as standard and it reminds us why we fell for the animated band back at the beginning of the 00's.
'Humanz' looks set to be one of the hottest records of 2017 and features a number of collaborations with huge names including De La Soul, Mavis Staples, Grace Jones, Danny Brown, Vince Staples and Popcaan (who features on Saturnz Barz). Welcome back 2D, Murdoc, Russel and Noodle.
