Gorillaz have released ‘PAC-MAN’, the fifth episode of their latest enterprise, Song Machine. 

The track is an audio-visual delight filled with nostalgic sounds and sights, featuring multiple Grammy-nominated rapper ScHoolboy Q. Its release also coincides with the 40th anniversary of the iconic game. 

‘PAC-MAN’ follows from episode four with Octavian, ‘Friday 13th’, released last month.

Song Machine is a year-spanning concept to integrate everything that makes the band special to one place. It is so-far bombed with singles, music videos, and ‘episodes’ which continue the stories of our favourite virtual band members.

Damon Albarn continues his prodigious ability to collaborate with some of the best artists and producers from the planet –  releases so far have included the the likes of Slaves, Skepta, and Remi Kabaka Jr, among others. 

For a fun backstage extra, Gorillaz have also been releasing ‘Machine Bitez’, background conversations between cartoon band members and the collaborators. Check out the latest one of 2D, Murdoc and Russel, discussing PAC-MAN.
