Following previous Song Machine episodes featuring slowthai, Slaves, Fatoumata Diawara, Peter Hook, Georgia and Octavian, Gorillaz are unveiling Song Machine episode five featuring American rapper ScHoolboy Q.

It’s accompanied by a vid feeling “the effects of an arcade game machine procured for Kong Studios by Gorillaz bassist Murdoc Niccals in mysterious circumstances, resulting in some unexpected cartoon visitors”.
