The album, which frontman Damon Albarn mostly made on an iPad, includes a mix of instrumental tracks and songs with vocals.  But the iPad wasn't the only instrument used to make the album; a guitar, piano, Moog synthesizer, ukelele and other instruments are also included on the recording.

The Fall was recorded over 32 days during the North American leg of the Welcome To Plastic Beach tour.

A video for the opening track, "Phoner To Arizona," was released on Dec. 24 and can also be seen at their official website.´╗┐

Oprah Gifts New Car to 'Favorite Things' Audience

Photo Courtesy - PRNewsFoto/Discovery Communications(CHICAGO) -- From diamond earrings, an iPad, and a brand new car, Oprah Winfrey succeeded for the last time at sending unexpecting audience members into hysterics during part two of her legendary "Ultimate Favorite Things" episode.

On the heels of last week's first installment of the popular Oprah Winfrey Show segment, Winfrey shocked yet another group of guests with another round of gift giving in which hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of goodies were doled out.

The first gift bestowed -- an Apple iPad -- came down from the ceiling flanked by angel wings as Winfrey explained that it is her "Number One favorite thing ever."

But the screams of the audience only escalated, peaking when Winfrey unveiled the never-before-seen 2012 Volkswagen Beetle, the keys to which were given to each guest in the studio.

Winfrey also gave the audience several items of clothing, including a cashmere sweater and matching leggings from Magaschoni, as well as Ugg boots covered in sequins and a patent-leather Coach bag that cost nearly $400.

She presented each guest with two $500 gift certificates to Nordstrom's lingerie department.

A custom set of Le Creuset cast iron pots and pans, plus its new line of stainless steel cookware, was also distributed to the audience -- carrying a price tag of nearly $600 per set.

A ballerina presented Oprah's audience with the Sophie Jewelry Box from Pottery Barn, which when opened displayed a pair of diamond Jessica Leigh earrings by Dana Rebecca Designs. Each pair has more than 100 diamonds.

Performances by some of Winfrey's favorite singers, Johnny Mathis and Josh Groban, helped finish the show, and audience members went home with each performer's new CD.
