In case Humanz wasn’t enough to satisfy your Gorillaz fix, they’ve gone and dropped a brand new track titled “Sleeping Powder.” Frontman 2D announced the track was coming in a message on the official Gorillaz app.
“Sleeping Powder” is Gorillaz's first new track since they dropped their fifth album Humanz, and like most Gorillaz tracks, the accompanying visuals are sufficiently trippy. The video opens with 2D playing the piano in a nondescript living room, and then things get weirder and weirder.
The new track doesn’t come as a huge surprise, as Damon Albarn estimated he had upwards of 45 tracks that didn’t make the final cut of Humanz. “I’m just sort of slowly going through all tunes that sort of didn’t work out and finishing them,” he told Zane Lowe in an interview. “I can stay in the game for at least another 18 months, I reckon.”
The inaugural Demon Dayz festival takes place this weekend at Dreamland amusement park in Margate, UK. The band is also embarking on a massive tour starting next month, and they’ll be joined by Vince Staples and Danny Brown on select dates.
