Gorillaz Share Video For ‘Cracker Island’: Watch
Gorillaz have shared the official video for their latest single Cracker Island, featuring Thundercat.
The video was directed by artist and Gorillaz co-creator Jamie Hewlett and Fx Goby. The clip follows animated bandmates Russel Hobbs, Murdoc Niccals, 2-D, and Noodle to a hospital and in a conflict with the police.
“Think of it as the final scene in the movie, the bit after the grand finale when the hero (me) is about to stride into the sunset, credits rolling,” explained Gorillaz bassist Murdoc in a statement.
“That’s right, we’re starting at the end. Why? COS I WORK IN MYSTERIOUS WAYS.”
Speaking about Cracker Island back when it was released, 2-D said: “It’s nice to be back, I’m well into our new tune, it brings back weird and scary memories of stuff that hasn’t happened yet.”
The video for the new single 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.
