About this item
‘Cracker Island’ is the eight studio album from Gorillaz, an energetic, upbeat, genre-expansive collection of 10 tracks featuring yet another stellar line-up of artist collaborators: Thundercat, Tame Impala, Bad Bunny, Stevie Nicks, Adeleye Omotayo, Bootie Brown and Beck. Recorded in London and LA earlier this year, it is produced by Gorillaz, Remi Kabaka jr. and eight-time Grammy Award-winning producer / multi-instrumentalist / songwriter extraordinaire Greg Kurstin.
The virtual band exploded onto TikTok gaining over 2.1 m followers in the space of a few months where they continue to innovate, taking virtual characters where no character has been before…
Barry says: Another neon synth-heavy outing from Albarn & Co. This time sees previous collaborators Beck & Bootie Brown return, while inviting new assistance in the form of Tame Impala, Stevie Nicks (!) and Thundercat! R&B-tinged electronica, disco and synth-pop grooves atop jazzy bass and huge percussion loops. Unmistakeable, classic Gorillaz.
