Grammy-Winning Alt-Rock Band Records Entire Album on iPad

Check out the music video below, Revolving Doors from Gorillaz latest album, The Fall. Gorillaz recorded the entire album on the iPad, and in just 32 days while on the road for their North American Tour. On the Gorillaz blog, Damon Albarn said he “did it because there’s a lot of time you just spend staring at walls essentially.” The iPad gave him a way to create music while out of the studio. “And it was a fantastic way of doing it.”

“I fell in love with my iPad as soon as I got it, so I made a completely different kind of record.” Said frontman Damon Albarn (NME). Listen to the full 14-song album here.

Gorillaz aren’t the only ones making use of this cutting edge technology – The Ultramods released an album recorded on the iPad 2 and the GarageBand app.
