a lot has been said for the new Gorillaz album "Plastic Beach", coming out on March 8th
Damon Albarn had stated that he would like "to work with an incredibly eclectic, surprising cast of people."
and so he did
the album will feature Snoop Dogg, Lou Reed, Mos Def, Mark E. Smith and several others
Gorillaz have even recorded a track with The Horrors,but noone knows if it will be released
so there's no doubt that we are all waiting for this album
the first track that we were lucky to hear is a radio edit of "Stylo"
i would say it is more into 80s, a different sound of what we were expecting
but it is rather interesting,it sounds like an old analog electronic song
and you can hardly tell if it is the usual Damon singing,featuring Bobby Womack and Mos Def
