2001-2011, the career-spanning best of from Gorillaz, will be released on EMI
s Virgin Records.A 15-track collection of the band s singles, videos and
remixes, The Singles Collection: 2001-2011 celebrates 10 years of audio visual
innovation and three studio albums from the most successful virtual band in
the world ever. The Singles Collection will be released as a standard CD, CD
and DVD and 140 gram vinyl. A special edition import-only 7 box set will also
be made available.Formed in 1998, the band released their revolutionary debut
album Gorillaz in 2001. The launch had many industry detractors who saw the
idea of an animated pop group as merely folly and gimmick but the album went
on to sell 6 million copies around the world. The hugely successful campaign
took its toll on Gorillaz. As guitar-playing wunderkind Noodle noted sadly
Every great band is destroyed by their success. Cartoon bands are no
exception.” Despite this, she wrestled the band back together for the release
of second album Demon Days in 2005 and a run of groundbreaking animated live
shows at Manchester International Festival and Harlem s Apollo Theater. In
early 2010 Gorillaz resurfaced again this time from an island in the South
Pacific with the album Plastic Beach. The lead single Stylo featured a bad ass
Bruce Willis chasing down our intrepid Gorillaz who made a clean escape and
headed out on their first World Tour with a crack team of musicians including
Clash greats Paul Simonon and Mick Jones.In ten years, Gorillaz didn t just
top charts around the world, hit number 1 in more than a dozen countries and
garner sales in excess of 13 million, they received influential awards and
recognition that represented the band s significance beyond their music.
Alongside a Grammy and an Ivor Novello, Gorillaz were nominated for four CAD
awards and took home the coveted Webby Award for Artist of The Year 2006, plus
the Jim Henson Award for Creativity. In 2006 Jamie Hewlett was awarded
Designer of the Year for his work on Gorillaz; four years later the band
graced the cover of tech bible WIRED magazine.Always open to an interesting
collaboration, Gorillaz have worked with numerous artists including Danger
