After being teased just yesterday, “Friday 13th” is introduced to the world via music video. Directed by Gorillaz co-creator Jamie Hewlett, the psychedelic clip features headshots of the band and Octavian, superimposed over clips of highways and tunnels, as the project was conceived in isolation due to Covid-19.
“Friday 13th” follows previous Song Machine tunes including “Aries” with New Order’s Peter Hook, “Momentary Bliss” with Slowthai and Slaves, and “Desole” with Malian singer-songwriter Fatoumata Diawara. Be sure to stay tuned for more from the series as Gorillaz move away from traditional album release methods.
