Elton John Teams Up With Gorillaz On ‘The Pink Phantom’

Brilliant news, we have the latest instalment from the Gorillaz Song Machine series, featuring Elton John. This time they’ve teamed up with the Rocket Man singer and rapper 6LACK.

The release is a huge jam, despite the crazy juxtaposition between Elton John’s classic vocals and the electronic sound from Gorillaz, interspersed with 6LACK’s lines.

It’s a super textured, interesting track. There’s a lot going on but throughout the chaos of all those competing elements, John’s vocals and piano add a real sense of stability to the new single.

Also Elton John in the Gorillaz universe is the cutest.

“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,” said John.

You can have a listen to it down below.

The release comes as the seventh instalment of Song Machine Season One. Song Machine is a project by the Gorillaz where they spontaneously share these absolutely insane collabs.

So far, they’ve teamed up with Octavian, The Cure’s Robert Smith, Tame Impala, and Joy Division’s Peter Hook.
