Gorillaz collaborate with Thundercat on new single ‘Cracker Island’

Beloved virtual band Gorillaz have collaborated with Thundercat on a new single called “Cracker Island.”

The track marks Gorillaz’s first new music since the release of last year’s Meanwhile EP. “Cracker Island” sees Thundercat delivering killer bass lines, making for a funky anthem. The track was co-produced by Greg Kurstin and Remi Kabaka Jr.

“It’s nice to be back, I’m well into our new tune, it brings back weird and scary memories of stuff that hasn’t happened yet,” singer 2-D explains.

Listen to “Cracker Island” below.

Lyrically, the track features lines like, “On Cracker Island it will die/ Join the collective in the sky/ And on the shining bolt of light.”

Gorillaz head out on a North American tour in September. Check out the dates below.
