Gorillaz have shared new single ‘Silent Running’.
The multimedia project’s new album ‘Cracker Island’ is out on February 24th, and it features a plethora of collaborators. In amongst the household names, however, Gorillaz also hold true to their roots, and return to some long-time friends.
Adeleye Omotayo has worked on countless Gorillaz projects, and the vocalist has a magical quality to their work. Damon Albarn embraces his talents, saying Omotayo places him in “…that sort of mesmerising dreamlike state you get in when you’re just following some train of thought.”
Out now, ‘Silent Running’ shows the more melancholic side of Gorillaz’ work, with its soulful qualities permeate by their pop insistence.
The group’s 2D adds: “Sometimes I get well lost and end up in the wrong place but then it turns out that’s where I was meant to be going anyway.”
A full video for ‘Silent Running’ is incoming, directed by artist and Gorillaz co-creator Jamie Hewlett and the Emmy-nominated Nexus Studios director, Fx Goby.
Tune in now.
‘Cracker Island’ will be released on February 24th.
