Hear new Gorillaz track, "Whirlwind"

Gorillaz have debuted a new track titled "Whirlwind" – scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to listen.

The song was originally recorded for the band's 2010 album Plastic Beach but failed to make the LP's final tracklisting. However, singer Damon Albarn appeared as a guest DJ on BBC Radio 2 over the weekend (October 5) and played the track, which features the Lebanese National Symphony Orchestra, during the show.

In May of last year, Albarn suggested that there could be another Gorillaz album without his partner Jamie Hewlett, and also said that the pair could work together again once they had reconciled from falling out. "Jamie wants to do other things and I understand," he said. "But you never know, in a few years he might have a burning desire to draw those pictures again, and as soon as he does that, as far as I’m concerned, there could be another Gorillaz album."
