The Grammy-winning band has released new music in honor of the late Tony Allen.
Gorillaz paid tribute to the late Afrobeat legend who died April 30 at the age of 79 with a new track titled “How Far?” featuring Allen and Skepta.
The song “was written and recorded with Skepta in London just before lockdown and is being shared immediately as a tribute to the spirit of a great man, Tony Allen,” the band said Saturday.
Per Variety, “How Far?” is the latest in a series of collaborative releases called the “Song Machine” from the band. The first installment was released on January 30 with English rapper slowthai and the American band Slaves. “Song Machine” episodes 2 and 3 came at the end of February and the beginning of April, respectively.
