Gorillaz and Little Simz Share "Garage Palace" Video, Inspired by All of Your Favorite Arcade Games
With nods to Street Fighters, Streets of Rage and more nostalgic classics
It’s been a solid six months since the release of Gorillaz‘s latest album, Humanz. The 26-track mountain of music and its subsequent remix project aren’t even close to all of what Damon Albarn’s cartoon band has in store for us, as an expanded vinyl edition of Humanz dropped at the tail-end of August.
Today, Gorillaz shares their latest audiovisual bomb with the frenetic new Little Simz-assisted single “Garage Palace” and an eye-grabbing 16-bit accompaniment that salutes all of your favorite arcade games. The clip arrives on the heels of an expanded vinyl edition of Humanz featuring 14 more cuts off from the album sessions, as Albarn and his all-star supporting cast trek the globe on a world tour.
In a brief interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1, Albarn revealed that he’d recently shared a studio with Tony Visconti, Mike Will Made-It and others.
Watch the new video for Gorillaz and Little Simz’s “Garage Palace” above and hold tight for their next transmission. We’ve yet to see the last of the animated music misfits.
