Gorillaz have been on one hell-of-a-roll so far this year. With their new Song Machine project surely just around the corner, today the animated superstars have teamed up with Tony Allen & Skepta to deliver their fourth single “How Far?“.
Following up their recent collaborations with slowthai x Slaves, Fatoumata Diawara and Peter Hook x Georgia, this fresh new single has only served to further the hype surrounding Gorillaz forthcoming LP. And considering Tony Allen sadly passed away at age 79 only a few days ago (April 30), it couldn’t have come as a more timely testament to the late great Nigerian composer, songwriter & Afrobeat Pioneer.
Featuring a mash of eerie horns, crisp, skittering drums, wonky guitar and some dark, melancholic verses / vocalizations from both Tony & Skepta, “How Far?” will definitely be on our regular rotation for the foreseeable future. Stream it below and enjoy!
