Gorillaz have released their new single ‘DoYaThing’ as a free download. The track, which is a collaboration with Outkast’s Andre 3000 and LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy, is available from Converse.com/doyathing.
The song was recorded for Converse’s ‘Three Artists. One Song’ campaign, which has previously brought together rapper Soulja Boy, Andrew WK and Matt And Kim to record a collaboration, and also saw Graham Coxon, Paloma Faith and ex-The Coral guitarist Bill Ryder-Jones collaborate to record a track together in 2010.
Gorillaz’ Jamie Hewlett has also designed a new shoe-range for Converse to go with the track, and is also working on an accompanying video. Singer Damon Albarn, meanwhile, recently commented that a 12-minute unedited version of the track would also be released in the future.
To celebrate their ten-year anniversary last year, Gorillaz released the career-spanning compilation ‘The Singles Collection: 2001 – 2011’.
