New Gorillaz Album Recorded On An iPad

Damon Albarn, Blur's singer and frontman of Gorillaz, announced the follow-up to Plastic Beach (3rd studio album of Gorillaz) has been recorded entirely on an iPad. He's aiming at a holiday season release. In an interview with UK music magazine NME, he said:

I've made it on an iPad – I hope I'll be making the first record on an iPad. I fell in love with my iPad as soon as I got it, so I've made a completely different kind of record.

I wonder how many music apps were necessary to get the album recording done on the tablet. Perhaps they needed to deploy their own app? We look forward to whatever Mr. Albarn has in store.
