The wait is over! At last, Gorillaz have released their new 2012 song “DoYaThing” which also features James Murphy from LCD Soundsystem and Outkast’s very own Andre 3000. As promised, on February 23rd, 2012 Converse released the new song as part of their “Three Artists. One Song.” campaign which is now at its sixth edition.

This new shoe-sponsored collaborative song is the first musical outing since his LCD Soundsystem experience, and to be quite frank, it’s actually a very good song. It’s catchy, and what we would’ve expected to be an odd collaboration was actually quite balanced and thrilling. Phew, now that was quite the mouthful but I think you’ll agree once you listen.

“DoYaThing” opens with Gorillaz’s Damon Albarn who raps in his familiar 2D style, with what seems to a bit of gibberish, but actually his verses actually make sense on a second listen. Damon passes the rapping to James Murphy who takes over the hook (which is the most enjoyable part, if you ask me). Now, beginning with the 1.50 milestone, Andre 3000 takes over and the next two minutes of the track turns to pure fast and furious rapping.

The new song was written and recorded back in September when the three music icons met up inLondon. When asked about their collaboration, the trio declared that: “We didn’t exchange any ideas at all (beforehand)”, Murphy said, “Damon was basically saying, ‘Let’s just get in a room,’ which, even if it wasn’t Damon Albarn, is a pretty convincing argument, really. To be honest, I was worried that I should prepare something, but went with it anyway.”

The song was not only sponsored by Converse, but it’s also been made available for free download! So let’s all give a tip of the hat on that one, and you can get it  here. The video is also sponsored by Converse, and it’s going to be released on February 29th, 2012.
