++ when AR gets too real?!?
Following the announcement earlier today of the title (Humanz) and release date (April 28) of the new album from Gorillaz, Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett have revealed the cover art and massive tracklist for the LP. There are 14 tracks on the regular edition, with five more on the deluxe. A Super Deluxe Vinyl Box Set will also contain each of the 14 regular edition tracks on its own piece of vinyl, backed by an alternate version. (Yes, that means it’s a 14-disc box set.) They’ve also put out a six-minute film called “Saturnz Barz (Spirit House),” directed by Hewlett, containing the track “Saturnz Barz” [ft. Popcaan], as well as clips from “Ascension” [ft. Vince Staples], “We Got the Power” [ft. Jehnny Beth of Savages] and “Andromeda” [ft. D.R.A.M.].

"In these dark times, we all need someone to look up to,” Gorillaz bassist Murdoc Niccals told Noisey. “Me. That's why I'm giving you this new Gorillaz song, a lightning bolt of truth in a black night. You're welcome. Now piss on! The new album's not gonna write itself."
“Hallelujah Money” is the first single from the virtual band since the release of their last album, The Fall. Of course, it’s not at all clear when their next album will see release, but the group insists it’ll be out later this year.
How to Succeed with Brunettes’ is one of nearly 3000 training films produced by the U.S. Navy during the 1960s that range from topics such as “good hygiene” to how women enlisted in the military should “conduct” themselves around their male counterparts. It’s also said that the film was lampooned by the television news program 60 Minutes in its early days and that the show even presented the Navy with a “faux Oscar” for How to Succeed With Brunettes for being the most “unnecessary” and “fiscally wasteful” film on record for the time. For you see, back in 1966 it was tax dollars that covered the $64,000 tab for creating this cringe-worthy film.
