So, apparently we'll be a getting a new Gorillaz album in 2021. I assume they'll continue releasing one song per month until the track list is complete.

I wonder what other collaborations we'll get. Hopefully a couple of big names.

I believe so. It´s marked as such on YouTube, Spotify... It only doesn´t have "episode" video, due to circumstances. (Or maybe it´s coming later.)

Yeah, it was released in honour of Tony Allen. I'd consider it like a bonus track. Episode 4 is yet to be released.

I see something is happening regarding Gorillaz on the Jimmy Kimmel live show tonight (was supposed to be last night). Not sure it would be a live from home performance as you’d be stripping away any featured artists, band members etc, although plenty have done it since the lockdown. I actually hope it’s the premiere of Song Machine Episode 4, not sure the Tony Allen one was classed as an episode?

I was thinking the other day that in theory Gorillaz should be the ultimate lockdown band being virtual. If they brought back some of the 2001-2005 style 3D character TV performances with a "live" recording dubbed over

i think he's singing over the track, it just looked badly synced/delayed

Can I just point out that, as an entirely heterosexual man that I am, this hippie version of Damon with the beard, wayfarer glasses and cap is absolutely adorable.
