Merry Christmas!

From the 25th of December go to thefall.gorillaz.com to listen to all 15 tracks in full!

Phoner to Arizona video: Directed by Jamie Hewlett; Co-directed and Edited by Seb Monk; Additional photography supplied by Mike Smith and Oswald Lee Henderson.

From Montreal to Vancouver via Seattle, Texas and Toronto, over 32 days on their North American Tour this autumn, Gorillaz recorded a musical diary. The result is a collection of 15 tracks, some with vocals, some without, some combined performances and some solo.

The 15 track sonic journal, titled The Fall, produced by Gorillaz and Stephen Sedgwick, will be available to download for free by Sub Division fan club members on Christmas Day and will also be streamed on Gorillaz.com from Christmas Day.

The music was recorded during spare time while on the road. "I did it because there's a lot of time that you just spend staring at walls essentially. And it was a fantastic way of doing it" says Damon Albarn. "I found working in the day, whether it's in the hotel or in the venue, it was a brilliant way of keeping myself well." Adding that the collection is "..like a diary, I literally wrote everything on the day in each place and there's a strange sort of sound of America and its musical traditions that comes through. It feels like a journey through America."

A physical release is planned for later in 2011

  1. Phoner To Arizona
  2. Revolving Doors

edie adams1 Found a review that gave it a 2.7 :( (http://www.thetunemusic.com/2011/04/album-survey-gorillaz-tune-yards-jamie.html) I really like how experimental yet true to their sound this album is, but it's definitely not the best. Rhinestone Eyes kind of set the standard for me :/
