Pretty much every time Gorillaz releases a song during the pandemic, we name it our Song of the Day.
And so it goes with “Strange Timez” by Gorillaz featuring Robert Smith, a combination you may have been waiting for ever since Gorillaz began collaborating with inspirational artists to make songs (which has been since their very first tune)!

In 1980 and 1981, The Damned went to Rockfield for a series of sessions that eventually became The Black Album, The Friday 13th EP, and Strawberries. Their time there produced some of The Damned’s greatest musical moments and memorable stories of horses, cows, vampires, rifles, and Lemmy.
In 2019, The Damned returned to Rockfield studios to record the first new music since 2018’s Top 10 Evil Spirits album. “Keep ‘Em Alive” is the first single from that effort.

Producer/musician Kelly Lee Owens collaborates with John Cale on a foreboding new single, “Corner Of My Sky” (feat. John Cale), from her forthcoming album Inner Song, out Aug. 28 on Smalltown Supersound.
The two Welsh artists first met in London while working on a song for John, which prompted a future collaboration for Inner Song. In “Corner Of My Sky,” Cale sings in both English and Welsh over Owens’ droning, psychedelic lullaby. The track follows a string of previously released singles and videos — “On,” “Night,” and “Melt!”
