A trailer for the Gorillaz documentary Reject False Icons has been posted with it set to premiere in cinemas around the world for one night on December 16th.
Director Denholm Hewlett spent three years with Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett as they crafted the Gorillaz albums Humanz and The Now Now, documenting their collaborations with the likes of De La Soul, Pusha T, Little Simz, Graham Coxon, Pauline Black, Danny Brown, Jehnny Beth, Mavis Staples and Noel Gallagher in the process.
He was also present for the band’s touring across Europe and the Americas, and Albarn’s own Demon Dayz festivals in the UK and US. “I’ve just wanted to make another record so that when we play the gigs this summer there is something nice to play everyone,” Albarn had told Zane Lowe on Beats 1 as The Now Now followed up Humanz.
“I thought I should make a record where I’m just singing for once. I mean, sorry, 2-D singing for once.”
“It’s an album, I sing on it. It’s pretty much just me singing, very sort of in the world of 2-D but kind of come out and he’s singing very expressively. I feel really good about it. I feel really really good about it. It’s a summer record.”
