From the latest batch we receive ZHU's much anticipated remix of "Andromeda", which he premiered at Ultra, and Bauuer's rework of "Saturn Barz". ZHU's takes a dark and moody approach to "Andromeda" and layers the original track with a house bassline, cinematic orchestral strings and his smooth falsetto vocals.
Baauer gives his unique spin of "Saturnz Bars" feat. Popcaan by adding a heavy bass backbone to the reggae-inspired tune. Gorillaz continue to surprise us as they execute one of the craziest album rollout plans we've ever seen. You can listen to both remixes below. Stay tuned for the highly anticipated Humanz LP! Enjoy!
Back in January, Gorillaz broke their six-year musical silence with "Hallelujah Money" feat. UK singer-songwriter Benjamin Clementine. Since then, the group has announced their own Demon Dayz festival and reportedly finished their album and have begun live rehearsals for what we assume is a full tour.
Well the band has now announced their much anticipated album, Humanz, and have just revealed four brand new singles off the project: "Saturnz Barz" feat. Popcaan, "Andromeda" feat. D.R.A.M., "We Got The Power" feat. Jehnny Beth and "Ascension" feat. Vince Staples. So far, the leaked tracklist we reported the other day is now 5 for 5.
"Saturnz Barz" actually comes with two different music video versions building on the backstory of Gorillaz continuing their iconic collection of music videos. One is a standard music video while the other is a 360 degree video you can drag the mouse around for a virtual reality experience. Both videos are below.
All four tracks are available to stream below, in addition to BBC Radio 1 host MistaJam's interview with Gorillaz mastermind Damon Albarn about the album and the making of it. Check out the tracklist as well and enjoy!

It’s been a minute since we’ve heard an original creation from UK singer x production duo AlunaGeoge, with their singles “You Know You Like It” and “Attracting Flies” remaining as staples in many playlists and set lists to this day.
Even though Aluna Francis had unforgettable vocal features on Jack U's (Diplo and Skrillex) “To U” and Mind of A Genius forerunner ZHU’s “Automatic”, the duo has remained relatively silent as they've been hard at work on a sophomore studio album that’s set for distribution this coming spring.
Along with the news of new music, AlunaGeorge deliver the fresh single “I’m In Control”. The same sultry vibes are ever-present throughout this bubbly tune; a dizzying cast of electronic aesthetics and dancehall-rooted rhythms accompany Francis’ range along with a feature from Jamie XX collaborator Popcaan.
As we look forward to more details coming from the new album, this new single single will serve as a pleasant appetizer to digest audibly for the next few months. Stream the tune below and above all… Enjoy!
