Filed under: Music MinuteAdeleGrammys

no title

Adele's last album earned her a whopping seven Grammys and made her a household name — so, it's understandable that the Skyfall songstress is a bit nervous to follow up her 2011 hit record 21!

One of those musicians is Blur and Gorillaz frontman Damon Albarn, who worked with Adele on five tracks for the yet-to-be-titled album. He recently opened up that he wasn't sure if his tracks would make the final album listing, saying:

Blur Debuts Two Wildly Different Tracks Via Twitter

Filed under: AnglophiliaMusic MinuteTwitter

Two new Blur songs for the price of one none?!? It must be our lucky day!

Blur pushed out two new tracks today and, let us be the first ones to tell you, these twins are NOT identical!

The Puritan (above) sounds like a funky cross between a British rendition of the Daria theme song and the Gorillaz doing dubstep. You might be in for a bit more bass-wobble than you expected!

Under the Westway (below) more closely resembles your Father's Blur. It's catchy and lovely and altogether sweet.

gorillaz to release ipad album for free on christmas

The Gorillaz have been giving out all types of exclusive gifts on their virtual advent calendar on their website, but the best gift is yet to come!

Jamie Hewlett, a frequent collaborator with the group, has confirmed that a Gorillaz album, recorded entirely on iPad, will be released on Christmas morning as a FREE GIFT for fans.

Here's what Hewlett had to say about it:

"On Christmas Eve, a video for one of the new songs from the iPad album will be released. Then, on Christmas Day, fans get the whole album downloaded to their computer for free as a gift."

Here's what Gorillaz' Damon Albarn had to say about his feat:

"I literally made it on the road in America over a month. I didn't write it before; I didn't prepare it. I just did it day by day as a kind of diary of my experience in America."

Pretty impressive, Damon! We'll look forward to checking it out!

Are U excited for a free Gorillaz album?

Okay, we get it. Some of you aren't onboard the Sue Sylvester Express. We respect that.

But like it or not, it is here to stay, so you might as well suck it up and at least enjoy all the Barbra Streisand songs being reborn by Lea Michele!

English singer-songwriter Damon Albarn was recently interview and made no hesitation is letting the world know he isn't down with the Gleeks.

Check out the video (above) to hear Damon tear into the show, calling it a show that will lead to "emptiness."
