Gorillaz returned after six years with the apocalyptic and politically-charged "Hallelujah Money" back in January, and the band are back at it again with four new songs—"Saturnz Barz," "Andromeda," "We've Got The Power" and "Ascension"—taken from their upcoming release, Humanz.

Listen to all four streaming below.

The band also showed a number of collaborators that would also be working with them on the new album. 

Check out what appears to be the track listing below.

This comes after a number of other subtle teasers to their fifth album, with band member origin stories in the "Book of Noodle" videos back in October and sharing the news that their new album is "finished" and they're currently rehearsing for a tour.

In addition to the hype surrounding Humanz, the band announced their first show since 2010 with their first-ever Demon Dayz festival in Margate, England. They’ll be headlining the one-day festival on June 10 at Dreamland amusement park. The full line up has yet to be announced.
