Gorillaz / new album, ‘Humanz’

Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett return as Gorillaz next month, with a new album Humanz.

The 20-track release is available across a number of formats including a two-CD deluxe edition (which adds six bonus tracks) and a 2LP deluxe vinyl set which is pressed on double heavyweight black vinyl housed in a cloth-bound foil-blocked 54-page hardcover book of Gorillaz art by Jamie Hewlett (it comes with a download card).

If £50 on the vinyl deluxe isn’t enough of an investment, then there’s a 14LP super deluxe edition vinyl box. Each record is a different colour vinyl and comes in individually art-worked sleeves. Each 12-inch vinyl features an album track on one side and an “exclusive alternate version” on the B-side. You get what sounds like the same book as in the deluxe vinyl set but the contents reside in a 12-inch bespoke vinyl case. This box won’t ship until late summer and is “super limited” (no actual numbers given!). It probably doesn’t matter because you have to spend £275 to buy one.

Humanz is their first album since The Fall, which was released physically in early 2011. Gorillaz are playing a secret show in London tonight and play Dreamland in Margate in June as part of their Demon Dayz festival.

The album is released on 28 April 2017 (except for the super deluxe, as noted above).

    I doubt anyone is looking here but the official store seems to have the super deluxe 14*12″ in stock

  2. Michel D. says:

    the 2lp with the art book now available at

  3. AH says:

    We receive today this message from URP (USA) about Gorillaz – Humanz [2LP]: “please note, as of last night, the label canceled the “Deluxe” versions for retail, so there is only the standard LP as the only vinyl version for retailers”

  4. Boaz Halachmi says:

    ONE HELL of a typo! PleadgeMusic is offering the 1CD for….yes… £1,325!!!!
    At least it includes shipping :-)
    That’s what I call a rare collectors item.

    In other news, the 1CD and 2CD formats will be available in 4 different covers, each one with a different character. Orders will be supplied randomly, so be alert you may get a cover you don;t like.

  5. TouchMyBoosh says:

    The new Massive Attack… now that’s exciting! Bring on the deluxe formats!

  6. Adam says:

    Compare to the most recent New Order vinyl SDE (alternate versions of all songs, lots of different color vinyl), which was $99. Even though it’s arranged on 14 records instead of 8, and includes a book, there is ZERO justification for a $350 price tag. I like Gorilla a lot, but that is insane.

    2CD for me, thanks.

  7. Robert Morgenstern says:

    This spring will be expensive. Ordered the Deluxe vinyl and Deluxe CD. Now i’m waiting for the Massive Attack album, which hopefully will be released this spring.

  8. Alan Wilson says:

    The superdeluxe ones that are back in stock aren’t signed by Jamie Hewlett, those one’s were snapped up in the first batch which was believed to be around 200-300 copies.

  9. Pete Muscutt says:

    From what has been previewed so far, this is an absolutely awful album, so no wonder the inevitable ‘deluxe’ editions are being wheeled out to try and flog a few copies. I was a huge fan of Gorillaz up until ‘Plastic Beach’ but they’ve severely lost their way since then and was devastated at how bad these tracks sounded. While I get Gorillaz is a sort of collective and known for collaborations, but this just seems to be a bit ‘rent-a-vocalist’ with no cohesion whatsoever. Disappointed and won’t be tempted by the supermegadeluxehardbackbook edition I’m afraid.

  10. graham says:

    Jean Michel Jarre on a couple of tracks as wel

  11. CJ says:

    I wasn’t all that excited about the prospect of this album, until I saw Grace Jones and Mavis Staples on the track list. Now I’m in for sure.

  12. Brian says:

    there were rumours way back that Bowie would be on the new album. Fake News. :(

  13. Bryan says:

    SuperDeluxe back in stock now on the US and UK Gorillaz stores

  14. Tim-meh says:

    Not impressed with the four tracks released yesterday. They sound like the type of processed beats dim school kids play too loudly on their phones at the back of the bus when you’re coming home from work.

  15. tom says:

    Releasing super deluxeditions of lps which are not even out yet , let alone had the chance to create some sort of legacy, is an empty exercise in greed and hubris. The taster track I heard was terrible.

    • Mark says:

      I won’t be buying it but I do prefer all the options being layed out now rather than buying a normal version only for the super deluxe version arriving 6 months later. Know what you’re saying about greed though….

  16. Richard says:

    And how long before those alternate versions crop up on CD or download a la New Order…

  17. William says:

    A few intriguing collaborations particularly Grace Jones and Carly Simon.

  18. Lee says:

    Ive just preordered at for £19.22 for the standard 2xLP

  19. Kauwgompie says:

    What a pleasant surprise. Love the Gorillaz, especially Demon Days. What a gem that is.

  20. fan says:

    Hallelujah Money…not for Damon Albarn

  21. Jack says:

    You may wish to sample some songs prior to dishing out the money for the deluxe (or standard) editions.

  22. RichRobson459 says:

    When I looked last night the SDE was signed by Jamie Hewlett but then when I looked this morning all reference to that seems to have gone. Maybe scrapped the idea?

    Pricing for everything but the CD is just too much in my opinion – Even the vinyl seems OTT.

  23. Alan Wilson says:

    The Super Deluxe £275 set sold out within a couple of hours of going on sale yesterday evening.
