Gorillaz have promised that “a new dawn is coming” with the release of a brand new track featuring Thundercat – listen to ‘Cracker Island’ below.

The experimental animated outfit – featuring Blur legend Damon Albarn – first teased the track earlier this month, posting a short clip that featured each cartoon “member” of Gorillaz – 2D, Murdoc Niccals, Noodle and Russel – alongside the hashtag #thelastcult.

Today (June 22), they’ve officially released the record, which some fans may have already heard as Gorillaz have been performing it live during their current world tour.

“It’s nice to be back, I’m well into our new tune, it brings back weird and scary memories of stuff that hasn’t happened yet,” 2D said about the track in a press release.

Check out the visualizer for ‘Cracker Island’ below:

‘Cracker Island’ marks the first new music from Gorillaz since Last year’s ‘Meanwhile’ EP. The three-track offering saw the group enlist the likes of Jelani Blackman, AJ Tracey and Alicai Harley for guest spots.

In a four-star review of the EP – a sonic homage to London’s famous Notting Hill Carnival, canceled prior to the release of ‘Meanwhile’ – ‘s Kyann-Sian Williams called the release “the perfect soundtrack to get you in the spirit before you go and wreck a dancefloor”.

Gorillaz ‘last studio album was 2020’s ‘Song Machine, Season One: Strange Timez’which was called “a worthwhile endeavor” in a four-star review by ‘s Thomas Smith.

The band’s world tour will see them perform headline shows in Australiawhere they are also locked in as co-headliners for Splendor In The Grass alongside Tyler, The Creator and The Strokes.

Last month, they extended the tour with a North American legwhich is set to kick off this September with EARTHGANG and Jungle in tow. The band will also return to the UK this August, with a headline show at All Points East festival.
