Gorillaz are continually blessing us with the release of new tracks from their upcoming album Song Machine. Today brings the release of the fifth single off of ‘Song Machine,’ an alternative electronic-laden track called “Friday 13th.” “Friday 13th” follows the release of “Aries,” “Momentary Bliss,” “Desolé” and “How Far?” these past two months. Safe to say, one of our favorite groups has been sufficiently busy churning jams.
“Friday 13th” perfectly fits the cache of singles already released by Gorillaz this year; their indie kick is certainly maintained with “Friday 13th,” a laid-back track with dreamlike alternative synth work. British rapper Octavian lays down impeccable verses throughout, giving the track a bit of a hazy, R&B influence.
We’re still not sure about the official release date of ‘Song Machine,’ but are definitely glad we have these five tracks to tide us over until then. Stream “Friday 13th” below and enjoy!
