Hopefully, this selection will help me earn some forgiveness. The past few weeks have been packed with excellent comebacks, bonus tracks, album-teasing singles, and even a stellar commercial collaboration. Here's what you might have missed.
Gorillaz, Andre 3000, and James Murphy, “DoYaThing”
Disclaimer: I'm big fan of the Gorillaz, André 3000, and LCD Soundsystem. Getting the Gorillaz's Damon Albarn, LCD's James Murphy and André in the studio together is just asking for total madness, and they delivered. The track, created for Converse's “Three Artists. One Song.” campaign, has all the hallmarks of the three legends. The production has all the electronic funkiness of a Gorillaz of LCD song. Albarn starts things off with his usually odd lyrics, Murphy contributes his loopy falsetto, and André 3000 comes in with a scorching freestyle. You can dowload the song at the Converse website. What's more exciting is that the track is just a piece of a 12-minute monster track, which will be out on the Gorillaz website within a few weeks. Brace yourselves.
