Throughout 2020, Gorillaz has been releasing new, collaborative songs as part of the Song Machine project. Those tunes, as well as a number of not-yet released tracks, will be collected for an upcoming album called Song Machine: Season One — Strange Timez, due out October 23.

The album features collaborations with The Cure‘s Robert Smith, Beck, Elton John and St. Vincent, among many others.
