Blessing us all with the release of their hotly anticipated track ‘New Gold‘ alongside Tame Impala and Bootie Brown, as well as announcing the official release date of their upcoming album, ‘Cracker Island,’ Gorillaz have most definitely caused a frenzy amongst their fan-base, and we could not be any more excited of all the new music that will be bestowed upon us early next year. The perfect timing for an announcement of such magnitude, the Grammy-winning virtual band ensure nothing less than energetic and upbeat tracks that vary in genre and style, as their eighth studio album will feature 10 breathtaking tracks, which will be seeing the day of light on the 24th of February, 2023.
Leaving no doubt to the imagination, Gorillaz have teamed up with yet another stellar lineup of collaborators for their upcoming album, with the likes of Stevie Nicks, Adeleye Omotayo, Thundercat, Tame Impala, Bad Bunny, Bootie Brown and Beck all featuring throughout the albums tracklist. Diversity at its finest, ‘Cracker Island’ can only further indicate the genius minds of this multifaceted group, with Murdoc, Noodle, Russel and 2D once again set to leave us all in awe with a collection of funky and truly irresistible music.
