Gorillaz, created over a decade ago by Blur frontman Damon Albarn and British cartoonist Jamie Hewlett, have released their promised 'Christmas' album, entitled The Fall.
For members of the Gorillaz's fan club, the album is avaiable for downloading. For the rest of us mere mortals, it is available for streaming over at the band's official site, and should see a more proper physical and digital release in early 2011.
Recorded during the band's most recent U.S. tour, the album was largely recording using an Apple iPad, with additional instruments. Mick Jones and Paul Simonon from The Clash, who were in the Gorillaz's touring band, are among additional musicians on the record, along with the legendary Bobby Womack.
I think The Fall sounds pretty great on headphones. Have you listened? What's your take?
