Animated downtempo ensemble Gorillaz has been soundtracking the pandemic lockdown here at Parklife DC, and that’s A-OK.
Gorillaz have turned to virtual studio Song Machine to fill the air with new music and good vibes to counter the coronavirus, and the fourth episode of the band’s new series is called “Friday 13th,” a hypnotic meditation featuring French-British rapper and singer Octavian (winner of the coveted BBC Sound of 2019) along with a video self-filmed at home during lockdown.

Songwriter, singer, and multi-disciplinary artist Jehnny Beth has released a third track — titled “Innocence” — from her forthcoming album, To Love Is to Live, which has a new release date of June 12.
“Innocence” is about the feeling of isolation and distance Jehnny Beth has experienced many times in big cities despite being so close to people all the time. Although recorded well before the current emergency, in many ways, it is an eerily prescient song of our now.
