Gorillaz Return With ‘Skinny Ape’ + Two Reality Shows: Look + Listen

Planning to debut their new song live next week at a pair of extended reality performances in London and New York City, the Gorillaz return with their latest single, “Skinny Ape.”

Appearing on the Gorillaz’s upcoming album, Cracker Island, the band’s latest title begins with an acoustic folk guitar and harmony in advance of a steady, synth-driven rhythmic groove that, ultimately explodes into a massive rave-up. 

The first of two unique “Skinny Ape” performances will take place on December 17 at 2:30 p.m. ET in NYC’s Times Square, followed by the second show on December 18 at 2 p.m. GMT at London’s Piccadilly Circus. And thanks to AR technology, the Gorillaz animated characters will appear in these spaces, towering above fans as they perform the song.

About their forthcoming Manhattan show, Gorillaz’s Murdoc Nickels stated “To all our followers, get ready for the biggest Times Square takeover since that other gorilla smashed the place up. Bigger in fact cos there’s four of us. Thanks to the techies at Google, we’ve created the music video event of the century, so don your pink robes and come see Gorillaz like you’ve never seen us before. The future is nigh!” 

“Skinny Ape” is the latest song Gorillaz have shared from Cracker Island, following the title track, featuring Thundercat, “New Gold,” featuring Tame Impala and Bootie Brown,” and “Baby Queen.” The album – scheduled for release on February 24, 2023 – will also feature contributions from Stevie Nicks, Bad Bunny, Beck, and Adeleye Omotayo.
