Damon Albarn’s band will perform at Boomtown Fair next month
The original single was the first to be released from the band’s sixth studio album ‘The Now Now’, and originally featured legendary jazz guitarist George Benson and Chicago House producer Jamie Principle.

On Superorganism’s version, the band’s frontwoman Orono Nguchi adds her own distinct vocals to the song, including a snippet of the rap segment from Gorillaz’ 2001 hit ‘Clint Eastwood’.
It also comes with its own video featuring Nguchi appearing as a holographic addition to the original clip, which starred Jack Black alongside Gorillaz’ 2D. You can watch it below.
Meanwhile the DJ Koze’s remix takes a largely instrumental approach, with the veteran German producer adding a chilled out beat to the original track.
Gorillaz are currently on tour across Europe’s festivals, with their only UK appearance of the summer to come at this year’s Boomtown Fair on August 11.
Last week, while performing at Roskilde Festival in Denmark, the band were forced to cut their final track short after rapper Del Tha Funkee Homosapien fell from the stage during ‘Clint Eastwood’, fracturing his ribs and puncturing his lung. He confirmed in a tweet shortly afterwards: “I’m doing alright but will be in the hospital for a bit, the care here is outstanding though.”
Later, Gorillaz mastermind Damon Albarn gave an update to Beats 1’s Matt Wilkinson. “Del is in hospital still in Roskilde,” he said. “He’s got seven fractured ribs and he punctured his lung on one side, lacerated it on the other. He’s gonna be fine. It was just a stage fall, and I’ve fallen off stage several times, off stages way higher than that and I’ve been so fortunate.”
He continued: “When he fell down, I was looking at him like, ‘Come on get up there’s 80,000 people out there and we need to finish.’ I thought I was going to able to carry the song on. I thought he was going to be okay. But he really wasn’t. He’s gonna be alright. Bless him. It’s an awful, awful thing that I can’t quite believe. I keep playing it through my head. He will get better, he’s gonna be fine.”
