D-Sides, an assortment of B-sides from Gorillaz‘ multi-platinum second album Demon Days, early demos and previously unreleased tracks compiled together for the first time, has been confirmed for a November 20 U.S. release on Virgin Records.

D-Sides highlights include “Hong Kong” the lush and lovely track recorded by Gorillaz for Warchild and the surprise hit of last year’s Demon Days Live show (given an exclusive refit here with added strings), the dubbed-out collaboration with The Bees, “Bill Murray,” and the apocalyptic scum-pop of “We Are Happy Landfill.” “Stop The Dams” is another collaboration, this time with the Sugercubes’ Einar Orn, protesting against dam building in Iceland’s wilderness. Demos’ “People” (which later become Demon Days single “DARE”) and “Don’t Get Lost in Heaven” give a sneak peek into the band’s creative process, while the Mandarin version of “Dirty Harry” provides insight into how Gorillaz might sound if they’d been born east of the Yangtze instead of deep in the wilds of Essex, while D-Sides’ bonus CD of remixes includes reworkings by DFA, Junior Sanchez and Hot Chip.
