Gorillaz Release New Single ‘Skinny Ape’, Announce AR Performances in London and New York

    Gorillaz have shared a new single called ‘Skinny Ape’. It comes alongside the announcement of a pair of events set to take place in New York and London next weekend. The “first-of-their-kind immersive experiences” will use AR technology to bring giant avatars of the cartoon outfit to Times Square (2:30 pm Eastern on December 17) and Piccadilly Circus (2 pm. GMT on December 18). Find more details here, and check out ‘Skinny Ape’ below.

    “To all our followers, get ready for the biggest Times Square takeover since that other gorilla smashed the place up,” bassist Murdoc said in a statement. “Bigger in fact cos there’s four of us. Thanks to the techies at Google, we’ve created the music video event of the century, so don your pink robes and come see Gorillaz like you’ve never seen us before. The future is nigh!”

    ‘Skinny Ape’ is taken from Gorillaz’s upcoming album Cracker Island, which arrives on February 24, 2023. The group previously shared the title track, ‘New Gold’, and ‘Baby Queen’.
