The 7th studio album from the band Gorillaz, titled “Song Machine, Season On: Strange Timez” has just dropped.
This particular album marks the beginning of a much larger project: The “Song Machine” series. The album features collaborations alongside Elton John, ScHoolboy Q, EarthGang, Robert Smith, JPEGMAFIA, 6LACK and Beck as well as Skepta, Octavian and slowthai.
Gorillaz drummer, Russell Hobbs stated about the series:
“Song Machine is a whole new way of doing what we do,” He explained. “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.”
The collection is arriving shortly following the debut of the band’s Song Machine Radio on Apple Music. Alongside co-creators Jamie Hewlett & Damon Albarn, band members Russell Hobbs, Murdoc, Noodle and 2-D host 1hr episodes featuring a personalized music selection as well as conversations outside the genre of music.
The band will soon celebrate as well as reflect upon their history that spans 2 decades wherein they stood out to become one of the most successful bands in the world.
