Credits inside the album
Gorillaz during the Demon Days era.
- Demon Days was
a special listening party at the SXSW festival
on 17th March 2005. At the festival, Damon Albarn
MTV News that the album "kind of tells a story
of the night and staying up during the night - but
it's also a bit of an allegory for the world, in a
state of night." Danger Mouse continued: "It wasn't
a very conscious thing, it's just when you get to
the end of the record you saw the concept there. It
wasn't something that was planned."
- The third single
"Dirty Harry" was originally planned to be the
lead-off single from the album, but apparently the
record company had other ideas...
- Compared to the
debut album, there are many guest appearances on
Demon Days, but interestingly, none of the
debut album's collaborators are present.
- The album scored
82/100 at Metacritic, making it critically better
than the debut album (71), Plastic Beach
and The Now Now (73).
- The album's front cover
design reminds of The Beatles' Let It Be.
- Total running time
(UK ver.): 50:51
