Chuck the tune rag in the wash, folks. You’re gonna want it fresh and crisp in preparation for a thrashing.

We know that a new album is allegedly coming at some point in 2017, but the based gods are apparently blessing us by dropping a no-fooling, very-real, brand-spanking new track from the almighty Gorillaz tomorrow.

After a lengthy period of inactivity, the band is set to release their as-yet-untitled fifth studio album this calendar year, and Damon Albarn is already punching his ticket on the hype train.

A sneaky little teaser video on the band’s YouTube page has alerted frothing punters to Albarn’s impending appearance on BBC Radio 1 tomorrow at 7:30pm GMT (about 6:30am Friday morning AEDST), where he will be unveiling “new music” of some description.

It’s been a particularly active 2017 already for the virtual group. The band put out the politically volatile track ‘Hallelujah Money‘ to coincide with Donald Trump‘s inauguration. Then they announced their own Demon Dayz festival, as well as a vinyl reissue of the classic album of the same name.

What treats Albarn has in store for us all in the wee hours of Friday are yet to be determined. But tomorrow’s forecast? High chance of bangers.
