"The Pink Phantom" will follow Robert Smith collaboration "Strange Timez", which landed earlier this month.
Gorillaz uploaded a snippet of the new track last night (30 September), ahead of its release at 5pm BST today (1 October).
Elton John wrote of the collaboration on Twitter, "I’ve always been a Gorillaz fan so when Damon reached out and asked me to get involved it was a no-brainer."
The @Gorillaz track I worked on is out tomorrow! I’ve always been a Gorillaz fan so when Damon reached out and asked me to get involved it was a no-brainer. The way the song turned out is just great – I can’t wait for you to hear it https://t.co/NK05tiGFeR pic.twitter.com/v0pXmz3rHn— Elton John (@eltonofficial) September 30, 2020
