Gorillaz returned today with the announcement of their new album, Humanz (out April 28 via Parlophone). They have now shared a new song and its accompanying short film. The track, “Saturnz Barz,” features Popcaan. In the video, directed by Jamie Hewlett, Gorillaz enter a haunted house. Russel heads upstairs to explore, and Murdoc strips down to take a bath—don’t worry, it’s censored. Things then get freaky: The nude Murdoc floats about the galaxy, 2D plays golf on the moon, Noodle gets wrapped up by a space monster. And there’s a singing pizza. After all is said in done, they head out for breakfast the next morning. The video also includes highlights of Humanz songs with Vince Staples, Savages’ Jehnny Beth, and D.R.A.M. Watch it below; scroll down for a 360 version.
Humanz features a slew of high-profile guests. In addition to Popcaan, Staples, Beth, and D.R.A.M., the record includes contributions from Danny Brown, Mavis Staples, Grace Jones, Pusha T, De La Soul, Kali Uchis, Kelela, Zebra Katz, Benjamin Clementine (on the previously shared “Hallelujah Money”), and others. Actor Ben Mendelsohn (Rogue One, Bloodline) narrates the album’s interludes.
