    Gorillaz frontman Damon Albarn is quite the generous bloke. Albarn has previously said that he recorded a new album of Gorillaz music on his iPad while on tour and he has revealed that he will issue that same album for free on Christmas Day. Gorillaz' cohort Jamie Hewlett spilled the beans about the new tunes in an interview with Australia's Perth Now.

    "At the moment we've got an advent calendar on our website and there is a daily door that opens to reveal a gift," Hewlett explained. "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." Make sure to carve some time out of your busy day with your family and from stressful activity like opening presents to nab the free Gorillaz album.

    About the iPad-created album, Albarn said, "I wanted to make sure that it came out at the end of the tour because I don't want anyone to think I'd tampered with it. 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."

    Oh, Damon. You are so pure. Are you going to get yourself a copy of the free, iPad-created Gorillaz album on Xmas?
