Gorillaz Release Surprise New Track ‘Garage Palace’
Gorillaz have today released a surprise new track ‘Garage Palace’ featuring Little Simz along with an accompanying, brilliantly retro, 8-bit video game visualiser.
Collaborating with Little Simz’ illustrator McKay Felt and director Noah Harris, this video adds to their long run of innovative and ground-breaking work, with the game ingeniously following Simz through dark alleys and cloudy skies on a series of combats, missions and obstacles to reach the top of a tower block for her final battle, but not without the collective muscle of Gorillaz behind her. Level UP!
To celebrate Halloween this year Gorillaz members Murdoc, 2D, Noodle and Russel Hobbs decided to share some of their favourite ghostly stories with Noisey. Read the stories here.
