Gorillaz Video: “Doncamatic”


This new Gorillaz single “Doncamatic” will be released November 22nd as a 7″ picture disc, CD single and digital bundle, picking up right where they left off on Plastic Beach. The video comes with this message from band member Murdoc:

“I actually found Daley washed up on Plastic Beach – covered in oil and singing to a seagull…or was it an albatross?  Anyway, I recognise golden pipes when I hear em’ so I popped a bag over his head, hosed the boy down and chucked him in the studio with Noodle and her 8-track. I left them to it while I stepped outside for a Lucky Lung or three, and when I popped back in this is what they’d come up with! Am I a genius or WHAT?!?”
