Last month, Damon Alban of Gorillaz announced that he was in the midst of recording the band’s first album to be recorded entirely on the iPad… and now they say that they’ll be giving that album away for free as a Christmas gift to all their fans.

The animated primate band was formed by a former Blur frontman and the creator of Tank Girl, and the iPad album will be released on December 25th as the final square of their Advent Calendar. It will be preceded on Christmas Eve by a new video for one of the album’s tracks.

A heck of an Apple-centric Christmas gift from my favorite ape-themed rock band this side of Mickey Dolenz and Davy Jones’ famous conceptual project.
