On the Gorillaz website, Albarn wrote about creating the album while on the road:
“I did it because there’s a lot of time that you just spend staring at walls essentially. And it was a fantastic way of doing it,” says Damon Albarn. “I found working in the day, whether it’s in the hotel or in the venue, it was a brilliant way of keeping myself well.” Adding that the collection is “..like a diary, I literally wrote everything on the day in each place and there’s a strange sort of sound of America and its musical traditions that comes through. It feels like a journey through America.”
