Gorillaz Release new track Garage Palace feat Little Simz

Today Gorillaz share a surprise new track, Garage Palace featuring Little Simz. The song has already been raucously received at their live shows and now it comes accompanied by a 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!

Even more excitingly, Little Simz will be supporting Gorillaz on the Humanz tour across European and U.K. dates this Autumn/Winter. European dates commence in November which will lead to their homecoming gigs in London’s O2 Arena on December 4th and 5th, with their usual line up of surprise special guests.

The Super Deluxe Vinyl Boxset consists of Gorillaz’ new album Humanz, presented across 14 individual pieces of 12-inch different coloured vinyl, packaged in individually art-worked sleeves. All tracks on Humanz are backed with a non-album bonus track, most of which are previously unreleased. The Boxset also Includes a 54-page, cloth-bound, foil-blocked, hardback book of Gorillaz artwork by Jamie Hewlett and a download card, all housed in a bespoke 12-inch vinyl carrying case.
