The band led by Damon Albarn are set to release the follow-up to last year’s ‘Humanz’ on Friday (June 29).
The group are currently giving fans a first full taste of the record on the Boiler Room’s YouTube channel. Gorillaz are playing live from Tokyo in front of an audience. Watch the stream below now.
The tracklist for ‘The Now Now’ is as follows:
‘Hollywood’ (feat. Snoop Dogg and Jamie Principle)
Meanwhile, Albarn recently revealed that he is “permanently dissatisfied” with his music. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, he said that while his voice has gotten “better” as well as a “lot richer and deeper”, he still is never happy with his creations.
“I have little glimpses when I’m making something, like, ‘Ahhhh, I love this! This is great!’” he said. “And then that moment ends and I just sort of return to, ‘Am I ever really gonna find — I don’t know what it is, but am I ever really gonna find it?’ I don’t know.”
Gorillaz are due to headline BoomTown Fair festival in August. It is the only UK show they have booked at present.
