They answered that it was a possibility and that might involve the Space Monkeyz again. In the same interview, they were asked if there might also be another G-Sides. Again, their answer was that it might be possible. In January 2007, websites began listing a March release date for a Phase 2 B-sides album. One of the websites, musictap.net, later pushed this back to 3 April. According to Gorillaz-Unofficial, the reaction of official parties behind Gorillaz is that the release date is just a rumour for now. On 29 August, musictap.net reported that the B-side album would be titled D-Sides and would be released on 20 November. On 18 September 2007, the official Gorillaz fansite confirmed the release of the album, as well as unveiling the album artwork and track listing. D-Sides was released on 19 November 2007 in the UK and on 20 November 2007 in the U.S.Track listingAll tracks by GorillazUK, U.S. & Deluxe Japanese versionsDisc one"68 State" – 4:48"People" – 3:28"Hongkongaton" – 3:34"We Are Happy Landfill" – 3:39"Hong Kong" – 7:15"Highway (Under Construction)" – 4:20"Rock It" – 3:30"Bill Murray" – 3:53"The Swagga" – 4:58"Murdoc Is God" – 2:26"Spitting Out the Demons" – 5:10"Don't Get Lost in Heaven" (Original Demo Version) – 2:29"Stop the Dams" – 5:39Disc two"DARE" (DFA Remix) – 12:14"Feel Good Inc."
