Gorillaz Share ‘Cracker Island FT. Thundercat’ Video

In a delirium of police lights and hallucinations, the BRIT and Grammy-winning virtual band Gorillaz ring in a new dawn, teaming up with Nexus Studios to create the epic psychedelic video for their summer banger Cracker Island ft. Thundercat. Directed by artist and Gorillaz co-creator Jamie Hewlett and the Emmy nominated Nexus Studios director, Fx Goby, Cracker Island takes viewers on a late night journey into the City of Angels.

Murdoc said – “Think of it as the final scene in the movie, the bit after the grand finale when the hero (me) is about to stride into the sunset, credits rolling. That’s right, we’re starting at the end. Why? COS I WORK IN MYSTERIOUS WAYS.”

This week, Gorillaz have been wowing crowds at sold out arenas in Melbourne, Sydney, and Adelaide with their first shows down-under in 12 years. To further celebrate this long awaited return to Australia, as well as the release of Cracker Island, fans will have the opportunity to visit the Gorillaz pop up store in Sydney, which will see Murdoc, Noodle, 2D and Russel take over 29 Australia Street in Camperdown – for one day only – this Saturday 30th July, from 9am – 5pm.

The pop up store will feature exclusive, never before seen merchandise and poster designs, as well as the sold-out tour range and a huge collection of merch, toys, accessories, box-sets, vinyl and more. As an added bonus, the first 100 entrants will receive a free Gorillaz face mask.

Gorillaz have clocked over 300 million Australian streams to date, have landed multiple Top 5 ARIA album debuts and have achieved ARIA Gold, Platinum and Multi-Platinum certifications on their records Plastic Beach, Gorillaz, and Demon Days respectively.

Originally based at Kong Studios in West London, the group of musical misfits – Murdoc, Noodle, Russel and 2D – have relocated to Silverlake, California as they recruit new members to join ‘The Last Cult’, in search of the one truth to fix the world.

Cracker Island features virtuosic bassist, mercurial talent and twice-Grammy winner Thundercat, with production courtesy of eight-time Grammy Award-winning producer/multi-instrumentalist/songwriter extraordinaire Greg Kurstin, Gorillaz and Remi Kabaka Jr.
