Gorillaz’ will release ‘Friday 13th’, the fourth episode of the Song Machine project, today at 5pm BST.

Gorillaz have been busy with the Song Machine series, and are about to strike again with a new episode release. This time, they are joined by British-French rapper Octavian. You can view the teaser trailer below for a glimpse of what is coming up.

So far the band have released the ‘Song Machine Theme Tune’ and three out of thirteen episodes for this concept, featuring collaborations with artists such as Slowthai, Slaves, and Fatoumata Diawara.

The upcoming track will follow from the band’s third episode which featured Peter Hook and Georgia. Virtual band member 2-D performed a version of the single at the Jimmy Kimmel
Live! show as part of his ‘at-home’ edition last month.

The band took a short break from the concept and released the single ‘How Far?’ with grime MC Skepta last month in tribute to the late Nigerian drummer, Tony Allen.

Octavian’s last collaboration was also with Skepta on the track ‘Papi Chulo’ released last March.

You can watch ‘Friday 13th’ featuring Octavian below from 5pm.
