Gorillaz to release music via new video series, starting with Slowthai and Slaves collaboration tonight

Gorillaz have announced a new project, called ‘Song Machine’, which will see them release new music via a series of videos captured in their (animated) studio throughout the year. The first video will go live this evening.

Drummer Russel explains: “‘Song Machine’ is a whole new way of doing what we do. Gorillaz breaking the mould cos the mould got old. World is moving faster than a supercharged particle, so we’ve gotta stay ready to drop. We don’t even know who’s stepping through the studio next. ‘Song Machine’ feeds on the unknown, runs on pure chaos. So whatever the hell’s coming, we’re primed and ready to produce like there’s no tomorrow. Y’know, just in case”.

As well as a new track, each episode of ‘Song Machine’ will feature interviews with the band and their real life collaborators. The first – ‘Momentary Bliss’ – will feature Slowthai and Slaves, and will be available here from 7.30pm this evening:
