Gorillaz unveil ‘Momentary Bliss’ video, featuring slowthai and Slaves

The first episode of Song Machine Season 1 has landed, and it’s a good’un.

Sometimes a combination comes together and it is just mindblowingly good. Think Ant and Dec, peanut butter and jam, Harry Styles rocking that Swim Deep t-shirt, and now it’s time to add Gorillaz, slowthai and Slaves to that mix.

Dropping ‘Momentary Bliss’, an absolute thumper of a track which we’re gonna have on repeat for the foreseeable future, the link-up marks the first episode of the new Gorillaz project, Song Machine, “the cartoon music contraption from 2D, Murdoc, Noodle and Russel, which spits out brand new episodes fresh from the studio, as and when they happen.”

“Song Machine is a whole new way of doing what we do,” drummer Russel explains. “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. Song Machine feeds on the unknown, runs on pure chaos. So whatever the hell’s coming, we’re primed and ready to produce like there’s no tomorrow. Y’know, just in case…”

There’ll be a new episode landing in two weeks, so bang ‘Momentary Bliss’ out on full volume until then…
