The internet has enabled new forms of artist production once unimaginable—like working with thousands of sometimes-anonymous collaborators from all over the world. Earlier this month, over 1 million internet denizens came together to build an elaborate, fantastic 8-bit tableau of a digital art piece. They built it pixel by pixel, working both with and at times against each other, over a 72-hour period. And it all played out on Reddit, of all places.

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.

When you visit the Musical Instrument Museum's new "Dragons and Vines" exhibit, you'll be handed two helpful accessories. The first is a set of wi-fi headphones that will turn themselves on whenever you approach one of the hi-def video screens. The second is a little more low-tech: a flashlight.
