Last month, we informed you of the band, Gorillaz’ latest project and how they were using frontman Damon Albarn’s Apple iPad to record the new album. Today, we learn from Jamie Hewlett, co-founder of the band, that they will be giving away the new album as a free download, a gift to their fans on Christmas Day, along with a free video of one of the songs from the album on Christmas Eve.

Albern, in an interview with Perth Now, discussed why they decided on Christmas to release the new album and said, “If I left it until the New Year to release it, then the cynics out there would say, ‘Oh well, it’s been tampered with.’ But if I put it out now, they’d know that I haven’t done anything because I’ve been on tour ever since.”

Happy Holidays, music fans!
