Don't shoot the Cure fan here but I don't hate Gorillaz. Their whole concept is really innovative. Everyone pretty much said Robert doing a cover of Small Hours would be terrible um, except me. I have witnesses. haha And it was brilliant. In fact....
At the end of each song machine release there's a tease for the next song. Apparently someone put that segment through some sort of song recognition program and it identified it as strange times gorillaz ft. Robert Smith.
I'm no expert obviously but it does seem a rather elaborate hoax if that's what it turns out to be.
I'm going to hope it's real and this is a curtain raiser to the new album at last.
I liked the original concept of the super-group, then it happens to any artist, it's difficult to stay creative, we'll see how this goes (hopefully for the good) (Personnaly I was more into Unkle than Gorillaz, just to say...)
In a further update one of the cartoon characters pieces - known as 'machine bitez',in this case number 12 has leaked.The characters talk about someone whose last name rhymes with whiff and first name with yoghurt. They also say he went into the sea, you and me.
Gorillaz ft Robert Smith. It's real. It's happening (probably Wednesday). My head may melt.
