Plastic Beach - Standard Edition

Plastic Beach is the third studio album released by Gorillaz.

Conceived from an unfinished Gorillaz project called Carousel, the album was recorded during June 2008 to November 2009 and produced primarily by group co-creator Damon Albarn. It features guest appearances by several artists, including Gruff Rhys, Bobby Womack, Mos Def, Lou Reed, Mark E. Smith, Snoop Dogg, Mick Jones, and the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble. Primarily a pop album, Plastic Beach contains lyrics concerning consumerism and ecology-related themes.

The album has produced four singles, "Stylo", "Superfast Jellyfish" (promo only), "On Melancholy Hill", and "Rhinestone Eyes". "White Flag" also appeared as a limited edition single for Record Store Day.
