Gorillaz – “Garage Palace” (ft. Little Simz)
Gorillaz have unveiled “Garage Palace,” one of several previously unreleased bonus tracks that appear on the “super deluxe,” 14-record vinyl box set edition of Humanz (available for $350, if you’re so inclined). The song features 23-year-old U.K. rapper Little Simz, who’s touring with Gorillaz and appeared at the band’s Demon Dayz Festival in England this summer.
Damon Albarn introduced “Garage Palace” on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show today, where he also teased a forthcoming song called “Hollywood” and mentioned collaborations with Flume and Mike WiLL Made-It. Albarn said he’s currently working on a follow-up to 2007’s The Good, the Bad and the Queen, a project he described as being inspired by the northern England town of Blackpool and set “between Stargate and Uncle Tom’s Cabin, if you want to be geographically precise.”
