The Gorillaz have given us a peek inside their next album Humanz (released April 28th), releasing four songs entitled “Saturnz Barz” [ft. Popcaan], “Ascension” [ft. Vince Staples], “We Got the Power” [ft. Noel Gallagher and Savages’ Jehnny Beth], and “Andromeda” [ft. D.R.A.M.]
The band The Gorillaz is the perfect combination between visual art and music. Since their inception in 1998, Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett have created a unique style of alternative rock/electronica paired with animation that has pleased the ears and eyes of many. Furthermore, the music videos always tie into a storyline. It’s always interesting to see what 2D, Murdoc, Noodle, and Russ are up to.
I was inspired to do some fan art (featured image), so here is some more fan art inspired by the music video for Saturnz Barz:
I am a huge fan of The Gorillaz, and it is a personal goal of mine to go to a concert at some point in my life. Their music always gives me energy and keeps me listening for the next track. I can’t wait for the album release! What is your favorite Gorillaz song/album? Let me know in the comments.
