Gorillaz‘ album ‘The Fall’ is set to come out on CD, vinyl and paid-for download in April.
Damon Albarn‘s band gave the album away as a free download to fanclub members last December. It was recorded on an iPad by Albarn and produced by Stephen Sedgwick.
It will now be released on 180g vinyl on April 16, for Record Store Day. The CD release will follow on April 18 and it will also be available as a paid-for download from the same date.
Albarn said of the album, which he recorded on the band’s 2010 US tour: “I did it because there’s a lot of time that you just spend staring at walls, essentially. And it was a fantastic way of doing it. I found working in the day, whether it’s in the hotel or in the venue, was a brilliant way of keeping myself well.”
The band also revealed the iPad apps they used for the album last year.
The tracklisting of ‘The Fall’ is:
‘Phoner To Arizona’
‘Little Pink Plastic Bags’
‘The Joplin Spider’
‘The Parish Of Space Dust’
