Gorillaz have pulled back the curtain on their recently teased Song Machine project, revealing it will be an online series that will find them delivering new material every week.

The first episode will debut Thursday (January 30) and will see Gorillaz team up with Slaves and slowthai. This first episode is called "Momentary Bliss," which is also the name of their collaborative track.
Gorillaz frontman Murdoc (a.k.a. Damon Albarn) said: "Hello everyone who is reading these words. I'll keep this short because once you say things you can't unsay them and they exist in the universe forever, like Tupperware."

Drummer Russel added: "Song Machine is a whole new way of doing what we do. Gorillaz breaking the mould 'cos the mould got old. World is moving faster than a supercharged particle, so we've gotta stay ready to drop. We don't even know who's stepping through the studio next.

"Song Machine feeds on the unknown, runs on pure chaos. So whatever the hell's coming, we're primed and ready to produce like there's no tomorrow. Y'know, just in case…"

At this point, it's unclear who Gorillaz will be collaborating with in the future, but for now, you can revisit the "Song Machine Theme Tune" below.

Gorillaz released their Humanz album in 2017 and followed it up with The Now Now in 2018.
