Gorillaz Release Video For Never-Before-Heard Song “Sleeping Powder” From ‘Humanz’ Recording Session

first_img[H/T Consequence Of Sound] While Gorillaz released their brand-new album Humanz about a month ago, Gorillaz fans should expect to see more and more new content from the band in the coming months. Damon Albarn previously noted, as reported by Consequence of Sound, that there were still forty to forty-five tracks leftover from the initial Humanz recording sessions, not to mention a brand-new TV show in the works. While fourteen of these leftover tracks will be issued via Humanz‘s deluxe vinyl box set (which will be released later in the summer on August 25th), that still leaves a great number of unaccounted for songs. Today, Gorillaz’s released what we can assume is one of these new tracks from the initial recording of Humanz, with the debut of the song “Sleeping Powder,” which does not appear on any of the track listings from Humanz or its subsequent bonus materials.New Gorillaz Album “Humanz” Is Here With 26 Total Tracks [Stream]Watch Stephen Colbert’s Incredible Sit-In With Gorillaz For “Feel Good, Inc.” On The Late ShowIn the opening moments of the “Sleeping Powder” video, which was released on YouTube, a man says “This is drugs. This is your brain on drugs. Any questions?” accompanied by a lo-fi image of an egg frying, pulling from the iconic anti-drug ad of the 80’s. After the opening title frame that announces that “Sleeping Powder” was written “by 2D,” the song starts with a slow and dreamy piano intro — undoubtedly riffing off the song’s name — before the beat kicks in, making “Sleeping Powder” a laid-back dance number whose energy peaks and falls. You can watch the psychedelic video for the latest from the Gorillaz below, and stay tuned for even more new tunes coming from the Gorillaz’s camp as additional never-before-heard tracks are released in the coming months.last_img
