Written by admin on May 27, 2016
Virtual British band, Gorillaz, is gearing up for the release of their fourth body of work called ‘Humanz’.
The band, represented only by animated characters, made waves in 2001 with the release of their best-known single, Clint Eastwood.
The second single from the new album is called Saturnz Barz, and features the vocal talent of Jamaica’s own ‘Unruly Boss’, Popcaan.
The song was premiered on Thursday, with the release of the music video that comes in a standard version and a 360-degree version.
The video contains all of the new song, plus parts of several other new songs, namely Ascension (featuring Californian rapper Vince Staples), We Got the Power (featuring Jehnny Beth of Savages), and Andromeda (ft. D.R.A.M.).
The first single released from Humanz featured the vocals of British singer Benjamin Clementine, considered by the New York Times as one of the culture-influencing geniuses of 2016.
Gorillaz also recently announced their own music festival called Demon Dayz, taking place in Kent, England, this summer.
Popcaan was unavailable for comment after the release of the song, as his management said he is currently on tour with Canadian rapper Drake.
