" Compared to "Hallelujah
Money" the rest of the
album sounds completely
different. Damon described
 it
as "house". It's extremely
 fast/uptempo compared to
 "Hallelujah
Money" and
 previous
Gorillaz work."

 Fufanu gig on 22nd February

" Week 3 of #prep and it's
now #bandrehearsals for
next 3 weeks."

" Ow! First video is painful."

" Dancing on a new Gorillaz
 song passionately.

there. It should be ready fairly
soon."

Trivia:

  • The first official previews for Phase 4 were released in October 2016 when the 'Books' for each Gorillaz member appeared on the band's social media pages. The 'Books' tell how 2D, Murdoc, Noodle and Russel ended up recording a new album in London after their escape from Plastic Beach.
  • The album's track titles were leaked on 17th March 2017 as they were found to be registered in the PPL database. A couple of days later, the demos for "Andromeda", "Busted & Blue", "Charger", "Saturnz Barz" and "Submission" were found on Vimeo (uploaded as private videos, but hacked quite quickly with the password "2017").
  • The guest artists who worked on the album, but apparently didn't end up on it include Liam Bailey, Raury and Vic Mensa.
