As previously reported by Spinner, 'The Fall' was created by Damon Albarn on his iPad as the band toured North America.
Albarn explained on Gorillaz.com what prompted him to make the album, "I did it because there's a lot of time that you just spend staring at walls essentially. And it was a fantastic way of doing it."
The process proved therapeutic. He said, "I found working in the day, whether it's in the hotel or in the venue, it was a brilliant way of keeping myself well."
Described in the post as a "15 track sonic journey," America is the main influence in an album which includes songs entitled 'Hillbilly Man,' 'California and the Slipping of the Sun' and 'Seattle Yodel.'
Albarn elaborated on the writing process. He said, "I literally wrote everything on the day in each place and there's a strange sort of sound of America and its musical traditions that comes through. It feels like a journey through America."
'The Fall' will be available to fanclub members as a download on Christmas day while a physical release will follow next year.
