Gorillaz is Back and It Feels Good

Gorillaz_Humanz_Album_Packshot



Yesterday may have been cloudy, rainy, windy and overall depressing, but Gorillaz came through and released four new songs. I’ve been a fan of British virtual band Gorillaz since the early 2000s. I would jam to “Clint Eastwood” when I was in elementary school (I was the coolest, edgiest third-grader in my day), rapped along to “Feel Good Inc” and when every high school crush rejected me, “On Melancholy Hill” healed me. Creators Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett not only created the members 2D, Noodle, Murdoc and Russel, but they gave these characters a story and world of their own, which they have shared with us through music and animation. Since then, I have eagerly dropped whatever I was doing to listen to any new songs when they’re released. However, Gorillaz had not released anything new after Plastic Beach in 2010 and I was slowly beginning to give up hope. Today, I squealed and even texted my mom in all caps when Gorillaz suddenly dropped four new songs — “Saturnz Barz,” “Andromeda,” “Ascension” and “We Got the Power” — in a Spotify playlist titled Humanz, along with a 360 music video.
