Gorillaz’ Secret iPad Album Is Coming Out on Christmas Day

The previously mentioned Gorillaz album Damon Albarn recorded on tour completely on his iPad will be out for free on Christmas via the band's website. Says Jamie Hewlett: "At the moment we've got an advent calendar on our website and there is a daily door that opens to reveal a gift. On Christmas Eve a video for one of the new songs from the iPad album will be released. Then, on Christmas Day fans get the whole album downloaded to their computer for free as a gift." Albarn adds: "I literally made it on the road in America over a month. I didn't write it before, I didn't prepare it. I just did it day by day as a kind of diary of my experience in America. If I left it until the New Year to release it then the cynics out there would say 'Oh well, it's been tampered with', but if I put it out now they'd know that I haven't done anything because I've been on tour ever since."
