You can scratch that new Gorillaz record off your holiday wishlist, because Damon Albarn and his cartoon comrades are making it their Christmas present to you.
The album, which was written and recorded entirely on an iPad, will be available as a free download on the band’s website on Christmas morning. Jamie Hewlett recently spilled the beans to Perth Now, saying, “On Christmas Eve, a video for one of the new songs from the iPad album will be released. Then, on Christmas Day fans get the whole album downloaded to their computer for free as a gift.”
In the meantime, swing by the band’s digital Advent Calendar, where they’re giving away goodies like videos and computer wallpaper each day leading up to Christmas.
