Gorillaz Not Played Out - Damon Unveils Doncamatic and Debutant DaleyThe next, brand new, Gorillaz single, "Doncamatic (All Played Out)," was unveiled on Zane Lowe's Radio 1 show and on YouTube last night.

The BBC radio evening show featured an interview with Damon Albarn, British vocalist and keyboard player best known as the lead singer of the Nineties' Britpop band Blur. Albarn formed the London virtual group Gorillaz together with Tank Girl creator Jamie Hewlett. The new and previously unreleased track features Manchester-based vocalist Daley and its worldwide release is scheduled for November 22nd.

According to the cartoon band's official website, pre-order details will be available very soon. You can listen to the song here.

In the interview, Albarn said, “Daley had been someone we’d been playing in our house and he’s got one of those voices that don’t come around very often… He’s about 22, white and has a great haircut."

The new single, which has a catchy electronic hook, does not feature on their 2010 album release Plastic Beach but has a similar synthpop feel and disco beat to tracks like "Stylo" and "On Melancholy Hill". Containing references to computer or video-game software, the contemporary lyrics urge the listener to slow down, "Download me, make up for the time you've wasted... Close the white book, unplug the brain from the game," since "the memory's all played out." Damon Albarn features on backing vocals and keyboards.

Gorillaz British Singer-Songwriter DaleyGorillaz are currently touring North America and have European shows scheduled for November. Albarn revealed that he'd been working on material for a new album during the tour.  "I'm trying to make another record. It's quite lo-fi." Recorded just a few weeks ago, Albarn was so excited by the tune, that he couldn't wait to release it.

The track is named after the mechanical rhythm device which was the first product of Japanese electronic instrument manufacturer Korg, released in 1963 (the Disc Rotary Electric Auto Rhythm machine Donca matic DA-20). "Donca" is an onomatopoeic reference to the sound made by the drum machine.

Of relatively unknown, British, singer-songwriter Daley, Albarn commented, “We got on really well and did this tune together. It’s fresh and upbeat and pop.”

London virtual band Gorillaz album Plastic Beach debuted with chart success around the world, including #2 positions in the US and UK, and #1 chart positions in Australia and Austria. The album went to #1 in the Billboard Alternative Chart, and #1 in digital charts in the US, Australia, Austria, Denmark, Germany, Switzerland, and the UK.

LOS ANGELES (Billboard) - Montreal rock band Arcade Fire illuminated the top spot on the U.S. pop chart for the first time in its career on Wednesday.

The group sold 156,000 copies of "The Suburbs," its third release, during the week ended August 8, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Its previous album, 2007's "Neon Bible," debuted at No. 2 with 92,000 copies.

"The Suburbs" reaped the benefits of a week-long sale in Amazon's MP3 store, where it was priced at $3.99. Apple's iTunes Store offered the set for a standard $9.99. While SoundScan's data do not reveal how many were sold only through Amazon's MP3 store, downloads from all retailers made up 62% of the album's first week (97,000 downloads out of 156,000 total sales). Comparably, "Neon Bible" saw 30% of its first week come from digital sales (27,000 of its 92,000 opening frame).

Last week's No. 1, Avenged Sevenfold's "Nightmare," slid to No. 3 with 45,000. Eminem's "Recovery" held at No. 2 with 152,000.
