Gorillaz during the Demon Days era.
Gorillaz during the Demon Days era.

  • Demon Days was premiered at a special listening party at the SXSW festival on 17th March 2005. At the festival, Damon Albarn told 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 (77), The Fall (67), Humanz (77) 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
