Cartoon music icons, Gorillaz, have dropped their brand new single ‘Aries’, which features Peter Hook from the band New Order and producer Georgia.
The song is the latest in the band’s new ‘Song Machine’ series which was announced by the group as a unique new method for releasing their music. The songs will be launched one at a time with an accompanying music video pretty much as and when they are written.
Gorillaz drummer, Russell, stated that: “Gorillaz breaking the mould ’cos the mould got old. World is moving faster than a supercharged particle, so we’ve gotta stay ready to drop. We don’t even know who’s stepping through the studio next. Song Machine feeds on the unknown, runs on pure chaos. So whatever the hell’s coming, we’re primed and ready to produce like there’s no tomorrow. Y’know, just in case….”
Watch the new music video for ‘Aries’ below.
The previous two songs to be released in the inventive series are ‘Momentary Bliss ft. slowthai and Slaves’ and ‘Desole ft. Fatoumata Diawara’. You can listen to both tracks below.
Gorillaz made a comeback in 2017 with their first album in six years, ‘Humanz’, which marked a new musical direction that the group were embarking on. They followed this up with 2018’s ‘The Now Now’ and here they are with even more exciting tunes, and CelebMix can’t wait to hear what comes next.
