An interesting track surfaced today from Phi Life Cypher who liberated a demo track he worked on with the Gorillaz. The un-released and un-mastered track was recorded back in 2001, before the British duo collaborated on the released tracks Clint Eastwood and The Sounder.

Check out the un-released track Starshine below.

Here is the brand new video for Gorillaz next single featuring Daley titled Doncamatic.

Last week Damon Albarn announced that he had been working on a new Gorillaz album and was hoping to have it released before Christmas.

“I’ve made it on an iPad – I hope I’ll be making the first record on an iPad,” he said. “I fell in love with my iPad as soon as I got it, so I’ve made a completely different kind of record.”

Can’t wait to hear how it sounds. The wonders of Apple…
