On Thursday Gorillaz announced a long-awaited new album and debuted new songs.

The album, Humanz, will be out April 28, and the 2017 Gorillaz look a little different. They spelled it out on Instagram earlier today, and Humanz‘s cast of supporting characters is impressive: Mavis Staples, Vince Staples, Grace Jones, Pusha T, Carly Simon, Danny Brown, and more.

And, apparently, Rogue One star Ben Mendelsohn?

The group debuted anti-Trump song “Hallelujah Money” in January, signaling that a new album might be on the way. Gorillaz debuted two new tracks on MistaJam’s BBC Radio 1 show today, “Saturnz Barz” and “Andromeda” featuring D.R.A.M.  The spooky “Saturnz Barz” video, released at the same time, is 360-compatible and features two other new tracks as well.

Plan your April 28 accordingly.
