New Gorillaz iPad Album Drops Christmas Day
The band Gorillaz
have posted an Advent calendar
on their website and will be releasing their latest album on Christmas Day for free. The new album was written entirely on an iPad because as Gorillaz frontman Damon Albarn put it, “I fell in love with my iPad as soon as I got it, so I’ve made a completely different kind of record.”
The band will also be releasing a video on Christmas Eve, with the new album dropping the next day. Gorillaz fans have evidently been nice all year long and will be getting a holiday treat for being so good.
When asked why the band was releasing the new album on Christmas Day, Damon said, “If I left it until the New Year to release it, then the cynics out there would say, ‘Oh well, it’s been tampered with.’ But if I put it out now, they’d know that I haven’t done anything because I’ve been on tour ever since.”
Lately, there has been an explosion of new music creation apps for iOS devices. It was only a matter of time before someone recorded and entire album using an iPad. The latest Gorillaz album is sure to be the first of many albums using the iPad as an instrumental recording device. I look forward to listening to some cool new Gorillaz tunes come Christmas Day. No lump of coal for Damon this year.
