Welcome to the World of the Plastic Beach

The long awaited and much anticipated third album from "fictional" band Gorillaz is finally due out March 8th and the band is finally delivering the goods. First and foremost is the track list:

  • "Orchestral Intro"
  • "Welcome to the World of the Plastic Beach" (featuring Snoop Dogg) 
  • "White Flag" (featuring Kano and Bashy) 
  • "Rhinestone Eyes"
  • "Stylo" (featuring Bobby Womack and Mos Def) 
  • "Superfast Jellyfish" (featuring Gruff Rhys and De La Soul) 
  • "Empire Ants" (featuring Little Dragon) 
  • "Glitter Freeze" (featuring Mark E Smith) 
  • "Some Kind of Nature" (featuring Lou Reed) 
  • "On Melancholy Hill"
  • "Broken"
  • "Sweepstakes" (featuring Mos Def and Hypnotic Brass Ensemble) 
  • "Plastic Beach" (featuring Mick Jones and Paul Simonon) 
  • "To Binge" (featuring Little Dragon) 
  • "Cloud of Unknowing" (featuring Bobby Womack) 
  • "Pirate Jet"
A very interesting list of collaborates this time around. I've been following the album's progress and am wondering a few things, namely where some of the guests have disappeared to that had been working on songs for the album. Cut I suppose? Perhaps we'll see them on another "B-Sides" or "D-Sides" type album after the release of Plastic Beach. My biggest question is what happened to 'Electric Shock'? De La Soul was to be featured on it. We do know that the other two demos released way back will be featured on the final CD. For the album version of 'Stylo' released today, hit the break.
