Gorillaz link up with Elton John and 6LACK for 'The Pink Phantom'

Episode Seven of Song Machine is here!

Following the announcement that ‘Song Machine: Season One - Strange Timez’ will be landing on 23rd October, Gorillaz are sharing Song Machine Episode Seven, ‘The Pink Phantom’, featuring Elton John and 6LACK.

“Damon reached out and asked me to do something and the way the song has turned out is just great,” Elton says. “I was in the studio in London and he was at the other end in Devon, but even remotely it was such an engaging and creative process. I’ve always loved Damon because he encompasses so many different sorts of music. He has his fingers in so many pies and although he’s achieved so much, he never sits still creatively. He’s constantly pushing forward and embracing the new, which is admirable and rare. He’s always working - he’s always doing something. He’s done so much to promote music from around the world, from Africa, from China, that people hadn’t previously heard and I really admire that. I’ve always been a Gorillaz fan anyway, so when he asked me to do a Gorillaz track - it was a no brainer. I’m so very, very happy that that’s come about.”

2D adds, “Thank you for being so generous to us, Mr Elton Sir John, with your time and genius and also those Danish pastries you brought and for making some of the best tunes of all time.”
