Gorillaz released their sixth studio album, titled The Now Now, on June 29th, 2018. Gorillaz is a British band known for their combination of rock, electronic and hip-hop music and their virtual personas. The band is primarily composed of musician Damon Albarn and comic book artist Jamie Hewlett, although more probably know the created characters of 2-D, Ace, Noodle, Russel Hobbs and Murdoc Niccals who appear in the band’s music videos and “perform” in concert.
Gorillaz put out their fifth studio album, Humanz, in April of 2017. Humanz was recorded over a year and half time period and came out seven years after their last album. The Now Now marks a much faster recording session as most of the music was recorded in February of 2018 for a release just fourth months later. Albarn has stated that one of the main reasons for the recording of their latest album was to have more to play during the live tour which is currently in progress, hence the reason for the quick turnaround.
Since the band’s inception in 2000 three of their albums have reached the top 10 of the Billboard Top 200 charts, with two albums peaking at the #2 spot with Humanz and their 2010 album Plastic Beach.
