Gorillaz have shared another new track from their forthcoming Humanz.
Titled “The Apprentice,” the soulful mid tempo tune features Rag‘n’Bone Man, Zebra Katz, and RAY BLK. “The track will be featured as a bonus song on the deluxe version of the new album. Listen below.
Speaking in a recent Billboard interview, frontman Damon Albarn revealed that he worked with some of Gorillaz’s new album collaborators to impress his teenage daughter and explained why he removed every Donald Trump reference from their new album.
“Trump’s ascension was one of the sources of energy that we meditated on, when it was like, ‘Ahh, that’s ridiculous, that could never happen,’” Albarn explained, adding: “There’s no references to [Trump] on the record – in fact, any time when anyone made any reference, I edited it out. I don’t want to give the most famous man on earth any more fame, particularly. He doesn’t need it!”
Humanz is due out this Friday, April 28 via Parlophone, pre-order it here.
