The album's second single, "New Gold", was released yesterday on YouTube and various other platforms. The first single, "Cracker Island", was premiered in June.

But what is this mysterious Cracker Island? Speaking to Yle last month, Damon Albarn said that "it is an island where all the crazy people can go to start their own sect and live in their own echo chamber. That's the world we live in."

"Cracker Island is the sound of change and the chorus of the collective," described Noodle the album in the official press release.
