Directed by Jamie Hewlett and produced by Cara Speller for Zombie Flesh Eaters, with live action by HSI Productions in Los Angeles, and animation by Passion Pictures in London, "Stylo" follows Gorillaz bass demigod Murdoc Niccals through a dangerous trip to the mainland from his new home on the Plastic Beach, namesake of the new record.

Something goes badly wrong and Murdoc, guitarist/Cyborg Noodle - who has replaced her (its?) flesh and blood counterpart since the original's apparent demise in the previous Demon Days' final video "El Manana" - and vocalist 2D end up in a high speed car chase with a local cop and an unknown assailant. Cyborg Noodle's circuits start failing and 2D fears for their lives as the gun toting bounty hunter draws ever closer....

Murdoc recalls of the video shoot (no pun intended), "Someone was chasing me through the desert! Luckily I had my camera crew following me and they captured it all on film, so I've cut it up and stuck it back together for my 'Stylo' video! That'll learn me not to leave the safe, toxic, isolated haven of Plastic Beach..."

Murdoc's new stomping grounds can be explored at the all-new all-different Gorillaz.com. The completely new site, which has just gone live, has been relocated from the now defunct Kong Studios (RIP) to the newly constructed complex at Point Nemo, Plastic Beach.

The "Stylo" single is on sale now and has already received a 4-star review from Rolling Stone and a "Must List" plug from Entertainment Weekly.

Gorillaz - Plastic Beach

Plastic Beach will be released by Virgin in the U.S. on March 9, 2010.

Plastic Beach is the first Gorillaz album since 2005's Demon Days which featured the Best Pop Collaboration with Vocal Grammy winner "Feel Good Inc." and, like its predecessor 2001's Gorillaz, sold some six million copies worldwide.

Gorillaz will headline the April 18 final day of this year's Coachella Festival in Indio CA, which will be the first live Gorillaz experience in the States since the Demon Days Live sold out five-night run at Harlem's Apollo Theater.

"We've been waiting since '05 for the cartoon band that brought us hits like 'Feel Good Inc.' and 'Clint Eastwood' to regroup. And now we know what's taken them so long: Gorillaz' sublime new single sounds like Kraftwerk backing and old-fashioned soul revue" - Entertainment Weekly

"Stylo boasts cameos by R&B vet Bobby Womack, testifying like a Harlem storefront preacher, and Mos Def, sounding like he Skyped in his 16 bars from an interstellar Internet café. Yet Albarn himself shines brightest, crooning like a proper soulman..." - Rolling Stone
