Fake or not, it's better than any song from Gorillaz in Song Machine.

Here's a new link: https://archive.org/details/west-hollywood

It's not fake, because when you try to upload it to youtube the video gets blocked instantly by WMG. Copyright info says: artist - Parlophone 16, song/album - "TBC 9" which might mean To Be Confirmed - September or Episode 9 [of Song Machine]. According to the seller the song was from Humanz or TNN era but lots of fans think that it sounds more like SM track.

People are saying that it's fake because when the song appeared on leakth.is forum the guy running everythingorillaz fan account on Instagram asked Jamie about it (what a stupid thing to do?). Jamie obviously said that fans shouldn't buy it, he didn't say it was fake though.

Do you mean from a production point of view? I have pretty bad tinnitus/hearing loss in one ear, I sometimes think it's a blessing that I can't hear every level of production perfection/imperfection. To me, this track is up there with the best Gorillaz tracks.

It's the distorted damon vocals to becks vocals..just doesn't sit well with me. Probably down to personal choice than production...I must admit though the second listen was better than the first..is the new link any different to the first version we got?

It sounds fairly horrible; presumably a very early demo.

Here are three earlier files I haven't deleted yet if you want to give them a listen, I don't remember which one was uploaded to archive.org though.

I hope that's a song machine track - it's great. Immediately catchy

Sounds genuine. Production-wise it's very crisp, just the song itself sounds like a very throwaway fun tune without much substance behind it.
