Gorillaz calls on Thundercat for their new single, “Cracker Island.”
Today, the fictional band unveiled their latest single, “Cracker Island” with some help from Thundercat. Production duties on the record are shared between Greg Kurstin, Gorillaz, and Remi Kabaka Jr. The lead single arrives in the midst of their The Last Cult campaign, where Murdoc Niccals is the “self-appointed Great Leader.” While it remains unclear what The Last Cult is, it seems like a promising sign that Gorillaz will be dropping a new project soon.
“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,” said singer 2-D in a statement.

I’m like a ship between the tide
I held on, I surprise
