At the onset of the year, Tame Impala‘s fourth studio album, The Slow Rush, was already one of the most anticipated LP’s of 2020. Now, Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett’s Gorillaz have thrown their hat in the ring with the rollout of a new audiovisual project, Sound Machine, led by a slowthai and Slaves-assisted single, “Momentary Bliss.” Doubling down on potentially year-defining new material, it appears the two bands may be priming fans a collaboration together.
Recently, Gorillaz’s animated guitarist Noodle shared an image on social media of his cartoon cohorts invading the cover art for Tame Impala’s beloved 2015 LP, Currents. Considering Gorillaz’ recent “Momentary Bliss” was previewed in a similar fashion ahead of the tune’s release, an upcoming joint effort between Tame Impala and Gorillaz now seems imminent.
