Gorillaz's Noodle Shares Mixtape of Inspiring "Kick-Ass Women" Artists
Gorillaz has kept fans on edge since word of new music first hit in October 2014. Albarn and Hewlett confirmed they had hit the studio to record a new Gorillaz album in spring of 2016. In September 2016, Gorillaz released a series of interactive multimedia stories on each virtual band member.
Over the weekend, Gorillaz's Noodle uploaded a new mixtape described to be an ode to all the "kick-ass women" and music pioneers who have been a source of inspiration.
