Mr Hewlett, who also attended Northbrook Art College in Worthing, has directed the new six-minute animated film 'Saturnz Barz (Spirit House)' featuring four of the band's new songs.
Gorillaz was created in 1998 by Blur frontman Damon Albarn and comic book artist Jamie Hewlett. The group will play the new tracks from the album live at a secret London show on Friday (24Mar17).
"It's a party record, it's a club record", he says.
Syrian army repels terrorist attack in Damascus
Elsewhere in the country, the Syrian military reportedly countered jihadist rebel assaults Tuesday in the western region of Hama. The attack comes just days before a fresh round of UN-brokered peace talks in Geneva aiming at ending Syria's six-year war.
The old animosity was a thing of the past, Albarn said, "I mean now it feels like, completely, you know, not news at all really" saying Gallagher was "really great".
In addition to the Humanz tracks and surprise guests, the Gorillaz gig also featured their debut album hit "Clint Eastwood", co-starring Del the Funky Homosapian.
Gorillaz are set to perform at their own festival this summer, Demon Dayz Festival, which is on June 10 in Margate, England. Popcaan, the Jamaican rapper with verses on tracks by Jamie xx, Pusha T and Travis Scott, features on the song full of references to rappers he's worked with and borrowing elements of reggae for the heavy production.
