Also, they officially released their new album named, “Song Machine, Season One: Strange Timez,” They have been teasing the album for a long time and now it arrives.
Gorillaz began making their seventh studio album with the specific intention of not making an album. Instead, the Song Machine project was conceived as a series of monthly stand-alone singles that would be created at the moment, without the constraints or concepts that come with shaping an album.
“That’s the definition of contemporary, isn’t it?” Remi Kabaka Jr.—producer, drummer, percussionist, and Gorillaz’s third member alongside Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett—tells Apple Music. “It’s more interesting working in this episodic format because it’s easier to respond to a moment than trying to remember your response to the moment. You are a bulletin—a responder at the moment, not a reporter of the moment.”
It eventually became clear that there was a very good album to be pieced together from these free-standing songs. And it’s one that reflects the turbulence and trauma of 2020. On “The Valley of the Pagans”, Beck sends strutting dispatches from a “land of the permanent sun/Where the flowers are melted and the future is fun.”
