Gorillaz have uncovered a remix of their euphoric dance track ‘Strobelite‘ ft. Peven Everett, by producer wunderkind Kaytranada – and you can listen to it now on the Shoot Music – New Releases Playlist.
The original version of the track comes from the group’s new album ‘Humanz‘, released to widespread critical acclaim earlier this year, reaching #1 and #2 in the U.S. and U.K. album charts respectively, and topping the iTunes chart in 60 plus countries around the world.
Gorillaz’s live show has already been met with a rapturous response. The band headlined the inaugural Demon Dayz festival in Margate earlier this summer and most recently opened their Humanz world tour across sold out dates in the US. They will return to UK shores later this year for headline shows in November and December.
Created by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett, Gorillaz, whose acclaimed eponymous debut album was released in 2001, is singer 2D bassist Murdoc Niccals, guitarist Noodle and drummer Russel Hobbs. The BRIT and Grammy Award winning band’s subsequent albums are ‘Demon Days‘ (2005), ‘Plastic Beach‘ (2010) and ‘The Fall‘ (2011).
A truly global phenomenon, Gorillaz have topped charts around the world and toured the globe from San Diego to Syria, picking up hundreds of millions of streams and record sales along the way.
Gorillaz have achieved success in entirely ground-breaking ways, winning numerous awards including the coveted Jim Henson Creativity Honor and are recognised by The Guinness Book Of World Records as the planet’s Most Successful Virtual Act.
