Gorillaz launch new podcast with Deezer

By | Published on Thursday 3 May 2018


Deezer has announced the launch of a new original podcast in collaboration with Gorillaz, titled ‘Things I Like’. The seven part series will be presented by the virtual band’s drummer Russel Hobbs, who will speak to a number of the outfit’s collaborators.

The first two episodes went live last night. The first sees Hobbs go back in time with De La Soul’s Posdnuos to give advice to his younger self. In the second, he plans the perfect dinner in the afterlife with Savages’ Jehnny Beth.

“‘Things I Like’ is a chance to hear the Humanz behind the voices, the shadows behind the thoughts on the record”, says Hobbs. “I wanted to connect the dots, to shine a light into those shadows, but also to have dinner with my favourite people. Cos I love eating and people… in that order”.

Other episodes will feature Peven Everett, Little Simz, Pauline Black, Cheick Tidiane Seck and Gabriel Wallace.

The show is available in all the places you usually find podcasts, plus the Gorillaz app.
