Gorillaz are once again disrupting the paradigm and breaking convention in their round the back door fashion with Song Machine, the newest concept from one of the most inventive bands around.
Song Machine – the cartoon music contraption which spits out brand new episodes fresh from the studio, as and when they happen, Song Machine second episode Désolé features multiple Grammy Award nominee and Malian superstar Fatoumata Diawara and sees our intrepid heroes teleport themselves via a Kong Studios portal to Lake Como.
Désolé – ‘sorry’ in French – is a hopeful and uplifting love song, rare as it’s being sung in three languages – English, French and Bambara. Being Episode 2, it accompanies 2D, Noodle and Russel, boating on Lake Como, while accidentally leaving band-mate Murdoc behind. An accident? Or possibly not…
You can watch Season 1 Episode 2 below.
Song Machine see’s Gorillaz joined by an exciting and ever-evolving roster of as yet unannounced collaborators captured live in Kong Studios alongside the world’s most successful virtual band. The cameras are rolling 24/7, the fourth wall is broken, the kettle is on, the chaos is real, the door is open… What’s coming next? Stay tuned.
