Gorillaz have shared two new songs: Humility (featuring the jazz and soul icon George Benson) and Lake Zurich.
The video for Humility, directed by co-founder Jamie Hewlett, features new bassist Ace, as the usual bass player Murdoc is supposedly in jail. Jack Black also makes an appearance as a Cali busker.
“Ace isn’t an original creation of Hewlett’s – he first appeared in Craig McCracken’s short film Whoopass Stew – A Sticky Situation, as part of the Gangreen Gang. This later became the Powerpuff Girls, where the gang played minor villains,” according Dazed.
Oh yeah, it's official: Murdoc's replacement is, in fact, Ace from the Gangreen Gang. (source: the official Gorillaz newsletter) pic.twitter.com/UJyk5DLajT

On their social media, the band has started the #FreeMurdoc movement. In an interview with Noisey, Murdoc claims he’s been framed by crime lord El Mierda for smuggling.
