Pushing the boundaries of mobile technology, the Gorillaz App allows fans to immerse themselves in the world of Gorillaz and join Murdoc, 2D, Russel and Noodle at home for the very first time. Developed by Gorillaz and B-Reel, the fully immersive mixed reality multi-platform app is a unique blend of real world, AR, VR and 360 environments.

Fans can explore Gorillaz’ house, discover a wealth of exclusive content, capture and share it. To celebrate the release of the new album, fans are invited - via the app - to the Humanz House Party, an exclusive worldwide listening event, giving them a chance to hear the new album in full for the first time, prior to general release. The Humanz House Party is the largest ever geo-specific listening experience, bringing people together across 500 locations from Tokyo to Santiago.
