Gorillaz to Give Album for Free as Christmas Present

Damon Albarn's animated band are giving fans a holiday treat this Christmas - they will make their new album available to download for free. The rocker recently revealed he had created the group's newest material on his handheld Apple iPad computer.

Albarn said, "I've made it on an iPad - I hope I'll be making the first record on an iPad. Which is ironic, being the sort of technophobe and Luddite that I am. But I fell in love with my iPad as soon as I got it, so I've made a completely different kind of record."

And the band will be releasing the project to devotees online as a present on Christmas Day. Albarn's Gorillaz collaborator, Jamie Hewlett, says, "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."
