Gorillaz eighth studio album ‘Cracker Island’ comes exclusively pressed to zoetrope picture disc via Blood Records, hand-numbered to order.
An energetic, upbeat, genre-expansive collection of 10 tracks the record features yet another stellar lineup of artist collaborators: Stevie Nicks, Adeleye Omotayo, Thundercat, Tame Impala, Bad Bunny and Bootie Brown and Beck and recorded in London and LA earlier this year, produced by eight-time Grammy Award-winning producer Greg Kurstin, Gorillaz and Remi Kabaka Jr.
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. Reports from the Golden State indicate that Murdoc is in love with the lady next door. Russel is glued to the TV. Noodle is compiling a handbook of wisdom and knowledge. And 2D is busy being 2D.
Guitarist Noodle said of the band’s new record “Cracker Island is the sound of change and the chorus of the collective.”. Russel Hobbs added - “When the reckoning comes, gotta be ready to step through the gateway. Cracker Island’s got the entry codes…” 2D said -” The path to Cracker Island isn't easy to find ‘cos it's underwater.” And Murdoc Niccals announced - “The hallowed tones of Cracker Island will soundtrack our collective ascension into the new dimension! JOIN ME!”
Please note that Blood Records is a pre-ordering platform and this record is due for release on February 24th 2023. All images for illustrative purposes
