The Gorillaz are back. But, more importantly, 2D is back.
After last year’s Humanz many Gorillaz fans, including myself, were a little upset at how little we got to hear Damon Albarn’s 2D on the album. Especially after Albarn said that he had an entire album’s worth of 2D songs. Well, that disappointment is finally gone because it looks like the reason Humanz was so jam packed with features was because he was saving all his solo 2D material for this upcoming album, titled The Now Now, releasing on June 29th. Today, Albarn went on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show to unveil two new songs, “Humility” and “Lake Zurich”. With “Humility” came the hilarious music video you’ll find above, starring Jack Black and a whole lot of interesting characters found walking around Long Beach. Additionally, we got the tracklist and album art for The Now Now, which you can find below. You can also find “Humiltiy” on our Tasty! Jams playlists for May.
