Gorillaz Confirm New Album 'The Now Now,' Share New Song, "Humility"
The band's first new single since last year's 'Humanz' features George Benson, though the album itself will include fewer guest stars than usual.
Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett's guest-welcoming cartoon band Gorillaz have finally confirmed details of a new studio album. The Now Now is out June 29 on Parlophone, and the announcement comes with the release of a new single in "Humility," which features jazz and soul legend George Benson.
The LP was recorded at Studio 13 in London, and it was produced by Gorillaz alongside James Ford and Remi Kabaka. There are far fewer guest stars this time around—Snoop Dogg and Jamie Principle appear on a song called "Hollywood," but other than that, Benson seems to be the only other feature.
