Cracker Island has been performed on the band’s current tour with vocals from Thundercat, though the virtuoso bassist has not been confirmed as a guest vocalist on the official release yet. Cracker Island will mark the first new music from Gorillaz since last year’s Meanwhile EP. The three-track release saw Gorillaz enlist Jelani Blackman, AJ Tracey and Alicai Harley for guest spots.

The news follows the announcement of Gorillaz’s first North American tour since 2018. In a statement it was confirmed that Damon Albarn and his 14-piece band will be “aided and abetted by a varying cast of guest performers” over the course of the dates. EARTHGANG will support Gorillaz on all dates except Orlando and Miami, where Jungle will be special guests.
