Gorillaz released a new song “Strange Timez,” featuring The Cure‘s Robert Smith, and an accompanying animated video on Wednesday (September 9).
The video features the band’s signature animated characters as astronauts on a trip to the moon that has Smith’s face projected on it.
The track is the sixth installment of the “Song Machine Concept,” which marks the celebration of the band’s 20th anniversary. The full collection, titled Song Machine: Season One – Strange Timez is scheduled to be released on October 23.
