Gorillaz To Drop ‘The Singles Collection 2001—2011’

There have been rumors and reports of Gorillaz finally throwing in the towel, with mastermind Damon Albarn moving onto other projects, and it appears a mysterious tweet from cartoon bandmate Murdoc may have confirmed it: “Gorillaz are TEN. Ten years old, eh? T.E.N. What’s that stand for? The End is Nigh…!” (He later followed it up with a similar tweet, tweaking his acronym to mean “This Era’s New!”) We may need to prepare ourselves to say goodbye to our animated friends, and there’s no better way to do that then to bask in Gorillaz – The Singles Collection: 2001-2011, available November 29. Track list below.

The Singles Collection will be released as a standard CD, CD and DVD and 140 gram vinyl. A special edition import-only 7” box set will also be made available.

Songs from the group’s first three albums — Gorillaz, Demon Days and Plastic Beach (which we named one of the best albums to come out of 2010) — will be featured on the compilation. (Their 2010 “iPad album” The Fall remains MIA.) There are also two remixes, and the CD/DVD edition of the album comes with the band’s beautifully animated music videos.
