The Singles Collection: 2001–2011 is a compilation album released by British virtual band Gorillaz on 28 November 2011. The album is a collection of the group's singles released between 2001 and 2011. The album is available in four different editions: standard, deluxe, 12" vinyl and 7" single box set.[12] The years 2001–2011 in title of the compilation are somewhat misleading, seeing as "Tomorrow Comes Today" was first released in 2000 (albeit as an EP, the actual single itself was released in 2002), while the newest featuring track, "Doncamatic", was released in 2010.

Song origins[edit]

Album title accuracy[edit]

Although The Singles Collection: 2001–2011 contains the vast majority of Gorillaz' singles, there is a bit of inaccuracy throughout the album. Singles "Lil' Dub Chefin'", "Rhinestone Eyes" (never officially released), "911" (featuring D12 and Terry Hall, released in 2002) and "White Flag" (released as a Record Store Day single in 2010) are not included, although "Rhinestone Eyes" was included on the 7" collection.

The split single "Revolving Doors / Amarillo" from The Fall released in 2011 was not included in the compilation despite the title, although the compilation itself was released in 2011.
