A collaboration between Gorillaz, slowthai and Slaves will be unveiled later today as part of the virtual band’s latest innovative venture.

Momentary Bliss, on which slowthai and Slaves feature, is the first episode of Song Machine, a series which will offer new music ‘fresh from the studio, as and when they happen’. It’ll premiere on YouTube at 7.30pm UK time.

“Hello everyone who is reading these words,” 2D says. “I’ll keep this short because once you say things you can’t unsay them and they exist in the universe forever, like Tupperware.”

“Song Machine is a whole new way of doing what we do,” Russel adds. “Gorillaz breaking the mould ‘cos the mould got old. World is moving faster than a supercharged particle, so we’ve gotta stay ready to drop. We don’t even know who’s stepping through the studio next. Song Machine feeds on the unknown, runs on pure chaos. So whatever the hell’s coming, we’re primed and ready to produce like there’s no tomorrow. Y’know, just in case.”
