Note: We're updating this article regularly as new information and videos are released.

After quite a bit of teasing, Gorillaz (aka Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett), have finally announced a new album.

Humanz, which will be released on April 28, is the band's first full albums since 2010's Plastic Beach although they did release an experimental album, The Fall, a year later which they recorded using just Albarn's iPad while on the Plastic Beach World Tour.

The band hasn't released much information yet on the set, although they did put out the song Hallelujah Money earlier this year and have promised a new track on Beats 1 later today (March 23).

Joining Gorillaz on the album are guest appearances from Vince Staples, Popcaan, Kelela, Pusha T, Grace Jones, Mavis Staples, De La Soul, Danny Brown, Carly Simon, D.R.A.M., Jamie Principle, Kilo Kish, Kali Uchis, Anthony Hamilton, Peven Everett, and Zebra Katz (see additional guests on the track list added below).

Albarn has been talking about a possible new album since 2015 when he said it would have "a benchmark of 125 bpm and nothing underneath that". Since then, news has occasionally leaked out along with some cryptic hints from both Albarn and Hewlett.

Tomorrow, the "band" will be playing Humanz live for the first time at a yet-unnamed venue in London.  Fans can enter a contest to win tickets by preordering the album before 6 AM GMT tomorrow (March 24).
