Gorillaz Perform Full 'Humanz' Album With Guests at Intimate Brooklyn Gig

FUSE TV - Gorillaz Perform Full 'Humanz' Album With Guests at Intimate Brooklyn Gig

Gorillaz make their studio return this Friday with Humanz, their first album in seven years. But as of last night, a small pack of lucky fans in Brooklyn have already heard it—performed live, in full. (Minus the first track we heard, January's "Hallelujah Money," perhaps, Stereogum writes, "for contractual reasons per Damon Albarn’s banter.") 

Gorillaz' Humanz concert went down at Rough Trade NYC, an intimate venue/record shop/bookstore. Since the album has featured artists on every song but one, a bunch of guests rolled through—De La Soul's Posdnuos, Peven Everett, Jamie Principle and Kali Uchis. Surprisingly the performance didn't feature the animated characters that anchor the iconic virtual band. Brooklyn Vegan writes that it wasn't the plan, but a last resort due to technical difficulties.
