Here’s another new track from the upcoming Gorillaz album.
This time Damon Albarn and his crew are joined by Snoop Dogg and Jamie Principle on Hollywood, taken from The Now Now, due out June 29th.
Here’s the record company blurb:
Following the previous three weeks’ reveals of Hot 100 charting single and #1 Global Trending Video on YouTube ‘Humility’ and tracks ‘Lake Zurich’, ‘Sorcererz’ and ‘Fire Flies’, Gorillaz have hit up fans with another album highlight: ‘Hollywood’ – the latest and last album cut to be made available prior to the release of The Now Now. Recorded as a demo in a West Hollywood hotel room whilst on tour last year, the track features special guest Jamie Principle – on tour with Gorillaz at the time – plus LA resident and longtime Gorillaz friend and collaborator, Snoop Dogg.
Produced by Gorillaz, with James Ford and Remi Kabaka, The Now Now was recorded entirely this February at Studio 13, London, and will be released June 29th on Warner Bros.
The Now Now will be available as a single CD, vinyl LP or as a digital download, as well as a collector’s edition Deluxe Vinyl LP Box Set. Details including pre order information here.
