Gorillaz: Biography and music career

Published At: 02 April 2020 , 05:15 PM


Gorillaz is essentially a cult, created in 1998 by Damon Albarn of the Blur group and artist Jamie Hewlett, a virtual team from England, consisting of four members.

The group's debut self-titled album sold seven million copies, which allowed the team to enter the Guinness Book of Records as "The Most Successful Virtual Group." Released in 2005, the second album "Demon Daysfive times received platinum status in the UK and twice in the United States. By 2007, Gorillaz and Demon Days album sales exceeded 15 million copies sold. In 2010, the team released two albums at once - "Plastic Beach" and "The Fall," after which, due to disagreements between Albarn and Hewlett, the group ceased to exist. 

Seven years later, the band expectedly reunited and presented the combo album "Humanz."


Already released the third track from the new album Gorillaz, which should appear on sale in late June. "Sorcererz" recalls the old work of Damon Albarn's project, and I would like all the other tracks on the album to be performed in a similar vein. There will be only three guests on the album, including Snoop Dogg (where would it be without him?).

"The Now Now" is the second album of the year released by Gorillaz. At the end of July, the group is expected to perform in Russia.

In addition to the single and the video "Humility," Gorillaz also shared another track from their upcoming long play, which will try to set a positive tone for the summertime for all listeners of the visual band.

The composition will be included in the upcoming album of The Now Now, the release of which is scheduled for June 29. The release will consist of 11 tracks, two of them - "Humility" and "Lake Zurich" - are already presented in advance.
