Gorillaz were the headline act at London festival All Points East on Friday (August 19). They topped a line-up that included appearances from Idles, Pusha-T, Yves Tumor, and Turnstile, all of whom you can imagine working with Damon Albarn in some capacity (if they haven't already). However, Albarn wheeled out a surprise collaborator during his band's set; Kevin Parker of Tame Impala. The two frontmen, alongside Bootie Brown, debuted new Gorillaz song "New Gold." You can see their performance above.
Soon after the performance Gorillaz shared a pre-save link for the song, suggesting the studio version will be released imminently.
It wasn't just Parker who joined the Gorillaz party at All Points East. Albarn welcomed a bevy of guests to the stage, including Mos Def and De La Soul as well as Popcaan and Moonchild Sanelly. Happy Mondays' leader Shaun Ryder was also on hand, coming out with Rowetta to perform "DARE" alongside the band.
