Liner notes

Credits in the album booklet.

Trivia:
  • Strangely, the album's subtitle Strange Timez isn't mentioned anywhere on the release (except on the tracklist, of course :-).
  • Damon Albarn's nine-year-old niece plays trumpet on "Strange Timez". She can also be heard cheering on "Opium".
  • Damon pronounces "contraband" differently on the album version of "Désolé" (listen to the comparison: album version, episode version).
  • Leaks: The demo version of "The Valley Of The Pagans" surfaced online on 3rd August 2020. The full album was leaked on 20th October.
  • Total running times:
    • Standard version: 43:03
    • Deluxe version: 65:18
