Long-running English virtual band​ Gorillaz have announced that they will release their next album The Now Now June 29. Non-virtual bandmember Damon Albarn will appear on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 to premiere a new track, “Humility," tomorrow (May 31).

The new release is being teased with a clip on a new website, TheNowNow.tv, which shows the band’s virtual character 2-D posing with a guitar.
