Gorillaz Share Bonus Track “The Apprentice” Featuring Rag‘n’Bone Man, Zebra Katz and RAY BLKApril 24, 2017
Humanz drops on Friday.
Gorillaz’s fifth studio album Humanz drops on Friday (April 28).
To spread the word, the band dropped one of the Deluxe edition’s bonus tracks. It’s titled “The Apprentice” and features Rag‘n’Bone Man, Zebra Katz and RAY BLK.
The funky, laid-back ditty boasts slick rap verses that oscillate in between heavy synths. “Yo, new black king, New York dream / Tell these motherfuckers everything I’m seeing,” Zebra Katz raps. “My world’s darker than the young black dream / Of the first black prince of a new white king.”
In March, the band premiered four of the LP’s songs set to animated videos, including “Saturn Barz” (feat. Popcaan), “Andromeda” (feat. DRAM), “We Got The Power” (feat. Savages’ Jehnny Beth and backing vocals by Noel Gallagher) and “Ascension” (feat. Vince Staples). Check those out here.
