Chill-Out And Relax – Here’s GORILLAZ Ft. SCHOOLBOY Q And New Groove ‘PAC-MAN’

New sonic impulses…

21 July 2020

Early this year GORILLAZ started a new project called Song Machine with the
cartoon heroes teaming up with other temporary artists. First came rap junk
Slowthai, then we got fierce punks Slaves, followed by Fatoumata Diawara,
then Peter Hook and Georgia joined the fun too just like Octavian did.

Today GORILLAZ premiered the collaboration with Schoolboy Q.

PAC-MAN is a relaxing lets chill-out vibe with Damon Albarn whispering over
a lazy beat. When Schoolboy Q takes over after two minutes the song turns
into a waterfall rap.
