Gorillaz and Little Simz link up on ravey new banger, Garage Palace

It's one of many unreleased tracks from their most recent album Humanz being unearthed for a special vinyl issue.

This year saw the long-awaited return of Gorillaz for their new record Humanz, which we got noted Gorillaz fanboy Mickey Kojak to review for us HERE. Ahead of a forthcoming, super-deluxe vinyl re-issue of the record to come later in the year, the Damon Albarn-led crew of virtual musicians have just unearthed a previously unreleased album cut called Garage Palace, which features vocals from British rapper Little Simz. It's completely different to anything I've ever heard from Gorillaz but it absolutely bangs, with Little Simz' grime-y vocal touch pacing above a raving, punchy production that's really weighed down by a pulsing bassline. "I really like the idea of making new music and playing it live almost simultaneously," Albarn told Zane Lowe in an interview earlier this week, where he also teased that he had been in the studio with Australian export Flume. "It will be a more complete record than The Fall [which they released digitally after touring their last full-length Plastic Beach], but hopefully have that spontaneity." Here's hoping that 2018 will see the group come back down under for the first time in a while.
