Gorillaz share 15-track playlist to build album hype
Anyone who hasn’t been living under a rock over the last few months will know that the most popular virtual band in the world, Gorillaz, will soon be releasing their first album in over 5 years. The band has been slowly giving previews of what’s to come on by continuing their visual story with The Book of 2D and The Book of Russel, as well as appearing in a new commercial for luxury car brand Jaguar.
As if the release needed much more help in the hype department, the cartoon band has compiled a 15-track SoundCloud playlist titled, “Russel’s ‘Caturday’ Playlist for Puss Puss Magazine,” to potentially give fans more of an idea of what sounds and styles inspired them during the creation of the new album. The playlist features a mix of indie, indie-electronic, downtempo, R&B and hip-hop with songs from the likes of Kiiara, BOSCO, Petite Noir, and even Baauer.
