Gorillaz record on iPad despite being in bed with Microsoft?
Gorillaz mastermind Damon Albarn has been recording while on tour on his iPad and says he'd like to have it out "before Christmas".
He's told NME, "I've made it on an iPad-- I hope I'll be making the first record on an iPad. I fell in love with my iPad as soon as I got it, so I've made a completely different kind of record."
He drops "iPad" enough times to beg the question, how will Bill Gates feel about this? Microsoft recently went into partnership with Gorillaz and launched a new site in which fictional member Murdoc shows off the features of Microsoft's new Internet Explorer 9.
Gorillaz is also set to tour Australia next month with De La Soul, Hypnotic Brass, Bobby Womack, the Syrian National Orchestra of Arabis Music, Bootie Brown, Little Dragon and Rosile Wilson with more to be confirmed.
Tickets are on sale now.
Gorillaz Australian tour dates: Monday 6 December - Burswood Dome, Perth Wednesday 8 December - Adelaide Entertainment Centre Saturday 11 December - Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne Thursday 16 December - Sydney Entertainment Centre Sunday 19 December - Brisbane Entertainment Centre
