Gorillaz – The Fall

The FallOn Christmas Day 2010, Damon Albarn’s “Gorillaz” project released a new album – “The Fall”.

Recorded entirely on tour -and primarily on Albarn’s iPad – The Fall documents the experience of the 2010 American tour, and was given away to fans as a “Christmas Present” from the band.

With a range of guests, including Bobby Womack, this is not just a cobbled-together release given away because there’s nothing else to do with it – this is a genuine artistic statement, a document of musicians’ touring lives, and – for being worked on almost entirely on iPad – an interesting look into the future of how music will sound.

Like most giveaways, you’ll need to sign up, and the signup is a little more in-depth than either Nine Inch Nails or Girl Talk‘s, in that you have to sign up to an EMI mailing list (being a UK company, they are subject to more stringent data protection laws than anywhere in the USA, so don’t worry about spam). You also don’t get permission to burn to CD, but with most people running iPods and MP3 players that shouldn’t be too much of a problem.

Personally, I shall be adding this to my collection right now, and I’m looking forward to it. :)
