Gorillaz Are Humanz!

Gorillaz are back, and they’ve got Humanz with them this time around–that’s the title of the animated quartet’s fifth album, which will be released on April 28th. There are plenty of special guests, with this crop coming almost exclusively from hip-hop, including Danny Brown, De La Soul, Vince Staples, Pusha T, and R&B with Anthony Hamilton, Grace Jones, Mavis Staples being featured.

They have released two versions of the first video–the six-minute animated clip is titled “Saturnz Barz (Spirit House),” directed by the group’s visual mastermind Jamie Hewlett and features four Humanz tracks — the single “Saturnz Barz” in full, plus highlights from “Ascension,” “Andromeda” and “We Got The Power.”  There’s also a virtual reality version, and an interactive VR video that’s coming in April.

The 14-cut Humanz album will be released not only on standard CD, vinyl and as a digital download, but also in a 19-track two-CD deluxe version and a limited edition super deluxe vinyl box set, featuring additional alternate versions of each of the album’s tracks.
