    Gorillaz frontman Damon Albarn released a new video for "Garage Palace", a track featuring Little Simz on the upcoming Super Deluxe edition of Humanz. The animated clip is video game-inspired, as the Gorillaz and Little Simz battle through a series of stages and fight 8-bit bosses. Humanz debuted on April 28, 2017, while the 14 bonus tracks featured on the Super Deluxe edition are set for release this Friday, November 3.

    In the interim, besides touring in support of Humanz (for which the Gorillaz have a series of European and South American stops planned in the next sixth months), Albarn revealed additional details about his work on an upcoming release with the supergroup The Good, The Bad, & The Queen.

    In an interview, Albarn said, "I've been recording The Good, The Bad & The Queen album. I've been working with Tony Visconti. He's responsible for some of my favourite records, so that's been really enlightening and inspirational. It's an ode to the North of England, bizarrely. It's sort of set in Blackpool, between Starr Gate and [historic pub] Uncle Tom's Cabin, if you want to be geographically precise. We've got pretty much all the songs and recorded all the backing tracks but I'm just emoting over it at the moment. I can hear what I'm saying kind of, a bit, but it's still a bit unintelligible."

    As yet, there's no release date set for the project, and also no confirmation of whether the album will include all the contributing members from 2007's self-titled debut. The group, which includes The Clash's Paul Simonon, The Verve's Simon Tong, and Afrobeat drummer Tony Allen, has only performed together once in almost the past decade. In addition, the question of whether longtime David Bowie collaborator Visconti has replaced or will work alongside original producer Danger Mouse remains up in the air.
