The follow-up to 2017’s Humanz got played in full in Tokyo
We may have mentioned here at Trill just a few times that it’s only been a year since the release of the Gorillaz last album Humanz. The virtual pop groups new album The Now Now will be available from June 29th.
Japanese and travelling fans alike were treated to Gorillaz latest opus in its entirety at the Zepp DiverCity music hall in Tokyo on Friday night. Lead singer and co-founder Damon Albarn belted out the new tunes accompanied by full on screen visuals of the cartoon band and Snoop Dogg even appeared on screen to guest vocal on the track Hollywood.
What? No live-stream?!
The show was streamed on to boilerroom.tv but unfortunately was only re-looped for 24 hours so no watch link I’m afraid peeps. The Now Now consists of 11 tracks recorded by Damon Albarn with producer James Ford in London earlier this year and features the previously released singles Hollywood (feat. Snoop Dogg and Jamie Principle), Sorcererz and Humility.
Even though you can’t enjoy the Tokyo live show you don’t have long to wait now, the album will hit the shelves and be available for download this Friday! In the meantime, NME have given the new LP a glowing review.
On July 5th the Gorillaz return to Europe at the Rock Werchter 2018 Festivalpark in Belgium with support from The Killers, Arctic Monkeys, MGMT and more. A handful of further European dates follow. Hopefully some UK shows will be announced soon.
Heading off to Europe to see the Gorillaz? Were you in the crowd in Tokyo? Fed up of this writer asking you questions? Tell us some stuff in the comments section. Here’s one we made earlier.
