Back in August, Gorillaz released their single "New Gold" alongside Tame Impala and Bootie Brown. The second single off their forthcoming album, Cracker Island, the track offers a psychedelic twist on the iconic band's classic indietronica sound.
Now, house music superstar Dom Dolla has been selected for an official remix, which is out now. It’s rare for Gorillaz to recruit remixers—save for a 2020 remix by Robert Smith, the last time was over four years ago.
The remix begins with atmospheric vocal chops, which layer over Parker's hypnotic vocals for a blissful, floating effect. Brown's unapologetic verses then enter the fray before a tense build, which culminates in an anthemic tech house drop. It's a signature Dolla record and one that doubles as a career highlight for the surging Aussie.
"Damon, Jamie and Kevin are all huge inspirations of mine creatively, being given the chance to put my spin on a collaboration between them all was an honor," Dolla said in a statement. "Chopping Bootie Brown’s vocals to create hip-house hooks was how this remix started, then it moved to some wonky synthesis ended with some moody breaks... the result has been a real moment in my DJ sets of late."
