Gorillaz unveil full new collaborative track- Doyathing

Gorillaz released their 3-in-1 Converse campaign single Doyathing, featuring Andre 3000 and James Murphy, on 23rd February 2012. Damon Albarn raps as 2D in his monotone, signature style and the track.

Watch the music video featuring a sleepy 2D and a very green Murdoc parading around their rather tidy house below. It's strange but fits the tune well, and as usual, Gorillaz blends live action and graphics perfectly.



As for the music, this Gorillaz track is quite enjoyable - it's definitely something worth downloading for fans. Damon's rap is similar to the introduction of Gorillaz's hit "Clint Eastwood" and Andre 3000 is brilliant as usual. The beat is catchy and extremely addicting- in a good way of course!

Gorillaz also released the making of Doyathing's music video along with a nice little interview with Pitchfork (click to read):



Visit converse's website here to download the track.

There's also a 13 minute version available for those of you who want to enjoy a longer tune HERE.

And since we're ape-ing around, it would be appropriate to mention that Davy Jones of The Monkees passed away recently. The Monkees sounded somewhat like The Beatles, and of course, The Beatles have influenced Damon Albarn and Blur significantly (although this influence doesn't seem to extend to Gorillaz!).


You can also buy the Converse shoes with great designs on Amazon.

Gorillaz new song "DoYaThing" preview released

Gorillaz's track for the Converse Shoes campaign is finally out, except not in full just yet. The track, called "Doyathingwill feature Andre 3000 from Outkast, and LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy. 

A 30 second preview was released yesterday, listen below:


The song's very catchy, with Damon Albarn rapping as 2D, which we think suits the song very well. There's a beat, a rhythm and it's pure pop bliss. It sounds like some of Gorillaz's best works (think Clint Eastwood, Feel Good Inc, hit singles)! 

A "Making Of" video for the track has also been released, watch below:


As usual, the video is similar to the band's full length documentary "Bananaz" which was a great hit on DVD sales. Jamie Hewlett, cartoonist of the band, is hilarious as usual, and you can catch snippets of the film crew making the Gorillaz animated music video.

The concept of releasing limited edition Gorillaz converse shoes is also quite nice. Check out these cool designs and order them now!
