Gorillaz have remained relatively quiet since founding member Damon Albarn revealed that he had spent time in the studio with Flume over a year ago. That may change soon, as the British audiovisual trio have teased a project called Gorillaz Present: Song Machine with a snippet of a track titled "Song Machine Theme Tune."
Brief as the clip may be, it shows that the cartoon group may be leaning towards a more classic electronic music sound for their upcoming endeavor. What it doesn't disclose is whether Gorillaz Present: Song Machine will be a traditional body of work (like an album or EP), an episodic series, or something less conventional.
Originally a duo consisting of Albarn and Jamie Hewlett, Gorillaz formed in 1998 and released their debut EP, Tomorrow Comes Today, in 2000. The 2019 documentary Gorillaz: Reject False Icons referred to Remi Kabaka Jr. - who has collaborated with the group since 2011 - as an official member.
