[News] Gorillaz iPad album, 'The Fall' Gets A Tracklist

Over the weekend there's been a lot of back and forth regarding the Christmas Day Gorillaz iPad album which firstly got given a name, The Fall. Now we have a track-listing for The Fall. It will feature 15 tracks, “some with vocals, some without, some combined performances and some solo." You can all start to talk amongst yourselves about your opinion on Damon solo work/instrumental tracks. As well as the track listing Damon said in a statement that his recent travels with Gorillaz has served as his main inspiration:

“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...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.” He went on to add that the iPad creation 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.” As Consequence of Sound points out you can see the American travels has inspired the names of the tracks too.

The website states that you can stream the album from December 25th and members of Sub Division will be able to download it on Xmas day too.  There's no solid release date for a physical copy of The Fall but it's said to  arrive sometime in 2011. Check the track-list after the jump and the 18 second snippet of the opening track that we posted the other day up top.

[Listen] Gorillaz - Scavenger Hunt Remix Revealed x New Album Releasing Christmas Day

All the fun and frustration of the Gorillaz Scavenger Hunt has finally come to an end. For those unfamiliar or have been living in a cave desperately trying to obtain a wifi signal, Gorillaz launched an online scavenger hunt earlier this week. The goal was to locate all 12 images of the band that were hidden around the web, that match the silhouettes on http://gorillaz.savvynets.com/ . When you found an image, and clicked on it, a specialized link would take you back to the scavenger site to show you the piece you obtained on your game board.Once all 12 images were found, a new remix would be revealed, and you can also enter to win a Gorillaz surfboard.

Thanks to the help of all of the people over at Gorillaz-Unofficial, Gorillaz.com, Gorillaz Official Facebook Page and Reddit, all 12 pieces have been obtained and we have the unreleased remix for you to listen below. It's a new remix of the single "Of Melancholy Hill" done by Josh Wink that has not been featured on any promo or official releases. For those interested in playing the game and entering in for a chance of getting the Gorillaz surfboard, you can still do so by clicking the link above to start the game.

In other Gorillaz news, Damon Albarn has stated they may call it quits after the Gorillaz World Tour. Which would totally suck. But the great news, Co-creator Jamie Hewlett confirmed in an recent interview that the new Gorillaz' album that Albarn had been creating on his iPad would be released on Christmas Day. YES!!

"At the moment we've got an advent calendar on our website and there is a daily door that opens to reveal a gift," Hewlett says. "On Christmas Eve a video for one of the new songs from the iPad album will be released. Then, on Christmas Day fans get the whole album downloaded to their computer for free as a gift."

So there you go, if Gorillaz are ending at least they are going out with a bang. But lets hope Damon and the crew are here to stay for many more.

[Watch] Gorillaz - "Welcome to the World of the Plastic Beach" Feat. Snoop Dogg

Gorillaz have been feeling extra nice recently, after all it is the season of giving, and have been giving us daily treats in the form of their Advent Calender over on their official site. The latest snippet of goodness comes in the form of a video for Plastic Beach track "Welcome to the World of the Plastic Beach". As Consequence of Sound point out, some of you may be familier with the video as it was played in the background when this track was played live on their world tour. But for us who sadly missed out on our (what looks like), last ever chance to check out Damon Albarn and co live, it's a nice opportunity to see Snoop being Snoop, and see what could of been a nice backdrop to a live show. Enjoy.

The Neptunes/N*E*R*D's Pharrell Williams Working With Blur/Gorillaz' Damon Albarn On New Song

I knew these photos had a story to tell. Pharrell Williams has revealed that he's putting a song together with Gorillaz frontman Damon Albarn. According to NME, The rapper said he has been in the studio laying down one new song. He didn't make it clear if it was recorded for Gorillaz, but with Albarn releasing a new album by the collective this year and having said he's working on further new songs for them, it is thought that Williams' contribution was for that project. 

“We’re working on a song together,” he told the Daily Star. “We haven’t finished it but it sounds so dope, though.”

Hears hoping that Williams and Albarn's upcoming track makes the next Gorillaz release which Damon has been recording on his iPad and is attempting to release around the holidays.
