Gorillaz On World Cafe

Damon Albarn says the meaning of Humanz has changed now that the "dark fantasy" he says inspired it has become a political reality. Hear an interview and live performance.
The musical mastermind and human frontman of Gorillaz, Damon Albarn, started writing Humanz more than a year ago, before Donald Trump was the Republican nominee for President.

How would we spend that night?" Albarn calls the concept a "dark fantasy" and talks about how the meaning of Humanz has changed now that it's a political reality.
