Gorillaz have enlisted fellow primate Bonobo and Berlin producer Claptone for a pair of new remixes. They take on Humanz tracks “Andromeda” (which features D.R.A.M.) and “We Got the Power” (with Noel Gallagher and Savages’ Jehnny Beth), respectively. Check them out below. They’d previously shared a Nic Fanciulli remix of Vince Staplescollab “Ascension”—scroll down to hear that too. Humanz is out April 28 (via Parlophone). Yesterday, they shared “Let Me Out,” featuring Mavis Staples and Pusha T, and Push revealed the album’s conceptual roots in an imagined, post-Trump dystopia.
Humanz also features Popcaan (“Saturnz Barz”)—on a song since remixed by Banx & Ranx—as well as De La Soul, Benjamin Clementine (“Hallelujah Money”), Grace Jones, and many others. The night after the LP’s announcement, Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett performed it at London’s Printworks with many of the album’s guests. In June, Gorillaz host the inaugural Demon Dayz festival, which happens in Marsgate, England. The next month, they play at Festival d'été de Québec, marking their first North American show in seven years.
