Gorillaz - Sub Division
The album was first given away as a Christmas present for Sub Division fan club members (as a digital download). Non-members were able to stream the album on thefall.gorillaz.com.

Trivia:
  • Having a similar concept as Damon Albarn's Democrazy, The Fall was recorded during free time on Gorillaz' North American tour in autumn 2010. All tracks were recorded using an iPad and some additional instruments.
  • "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," said Damon.
  • On the tour, Damon and Pharrell Williams spent some time in the studio together (Williams' band N.E.R.D was then supporting Gorillaz), but unfortunately their collaboration didn't make it onto the record.
  • Total running time: 43:27
