PLASTIC BEACH: GORILLAZ ARE BACK

Plastic Beach the new album from Gorillaz, will be released by Parlophone on
8 March, 2010.

The album is lead by a single Stylo (featuring Mos Def and Bobby Womack)
which will be available for download from January 26th. The single is Zane
Lowe¹s ³Hottest Record In The World².
Confirming Stylo, Murdoc Niccals twittered, ³A leak! A leak! Plastic Beach
has sprung a leak! One of those Russian pirates has put a bullet hole in my
island! My single's leaked! STYLO!²

Five years on from the release of Demon Days, Murdoc Niccals and co. return
with Gorillaz. The band have taken up residence, recording on a secret
floating island deep in the South Pacific, a Plastic Beach HQ, made up of
the detritus, debris and washed up remnants of humanity. This Plastic Beach
is the furthest point from any landmass on Earth; the most deserted spot on
the planet.

As the world¹s biggest animated band, Gorillaz formed in 1998, and have
since sold 12 million copies over two albums Gorillaz (2000) and Demon Days
(2005). They have hit number 1 in more than a dozen countries and picked up
awards including Grammys, Novellos, VMAs and EMAs.

The Gorillaz return will be marked by a ³tell all² feature in this month¹s Q
Magazine featuring a bespoke gatefold cover.

Plastic Beach is produced by Gorillaz.
