Gorillaz, The Fall
Created entirely on iPad apps, this musical diary from Damon Albarn and Gorillaz was recorded in hotels and venues during the band's North American tour last autumn. Produced by the band and Stephen Sedgwick, it features guest Bobby Womack. Songs from the road include "The Snake in Dallas" and "Aspen Forest." Following up last year's Plastic Beach, this 15-track album was made available for download in December and is now set for CD release. A limited edition vinyl version released for Record Store Day, April 16.
