About this item
A brand new studio album from Gorillaz titled The Now Now will be released by Parlophone Records on 29th June.
The Now Now is 11 all-new songs from the World’s Most Successful Virtual Act, produced by Gorillaz, with James Ford and Remi Kabaka, and recorded in London, in February this year.
The album sessions for The Now Now saw the band largely eschewing guest stars, taking it back to the core creative crew: blue-haired, sweet-natured dreamer 2D on vocals; whip-smart Japanese badass Noodle on guitar; not forgetting Brooklyn-born philosopher and the meat–behind-the-beat Russel Hobbs on drums. And with Murdoc Niccals temporarily indisposed, bass duties on the new album have been taken up by erstwhile Gangreen Gang member Ace.
Andy says: Gorillaz return for this, their sixth studio LP, and most diverse outing yet. Sporting sleazed-out electronic funk, smooth synthetic jams and brimming with Albarn's latent creativity, 'The Now Now' is rich with groove and packed with all the elements that make us love them so. Another brilliant outing from Albarn et. al.
