Gorillaz have revealed that the second episode of their Song Machine project will feature Mali actor and singer/songwriter Fatoumata Diawara.

Last month, Gorillaz started the campaign for their new Song Machine project by releasing "Momentary Bliss" featuring Slaves and slowthai.

They then teased a second episode of Song Machine, prompting fans to try and guess who the next collaborator is.

Gorillaz have today revealed that Fatoumata Diawara will be the collaborator on episode two of Song Machine.

Gorillaz drummer Russel says of the series, "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…"

Song Machine will be the first project from Gorillaz since their 2018 album The Now Now.

Gorillaz are yet to announce the release date for the second episode of Song Machine.
