“Cracker Island is the sound of change and the chorus of the collective,” guitarist Noodle said of the new album. Russel Hobbs added, “When the reckoning comes, gotta be ready to step through the gateway. Cracker Island’s got the entry codes…”
”The path to Cracker Island isn’t easy to find ‘cos it’s underwater,” 2D remarked. And Murdoc Niccals commented: “The hallowed tones of Cracker Island will soundtrack our collective ascension into the new dimension! JOIN ME!”
Cracker Island, Gorillaz’s eighth studio LP, also features guest appearances from Stevie Nicks, Adeleye Omotayo, Bad Bunny, and Beck. It was recorded in London and LA earlier this year with producers Greg Kurstin and Remi Kabaka Jr.
