With the help of The Cure‘s Robert Smith, the British rock band, Gorillaz, recently released “Strange Timez,”, a new recording that describes where the artists’ minds go when they think about the world’s current condition.

The Parlophone Records song comes complete with a video of the fictitious group’s signature animated avatars exploring space in a flying RV along with Smith’s face superimposed on the moon and a passing satellite referencing science fiction films like 2001: A Space Odyssey. The recording is spacey and futuristic backed by driving driving and you can check out the whole offering below.

“Strange Timez” marks the sixth installment in Gorillaz’ Song Machine series, which celebrates the band’s 20th anniversary. The Gorillaz Almanac, a comic book exploring the Gorillaz’ visual history, is also due out this coming October.
