Just a couple of weeks ago, the Damon Albarn-led band Gorillaz dropped their new album The Now Now. Coming just a year after the star-packed sprawl of Humanz, The Now Now was a decidedly more focused and stripped back endeavor, featuring some of the bands best songs in years. One of the standouts from that album is the single “Humility” that dropped ahead of the full album some months ago. Today, Gorillaz decided to share some updated versions of that track, one of which has been remixed by DJ Koze, and the other by Superorganism.
As you can see, along with the Superorganism remix, comes a brand new video for the track that was directed by Jamie Hewlett. In an interview with Beats 1 DJ Zane Lowe, Albarn talked about how his thinking and approach changed on Gorillaz latest album. “I thought I should make a record where I’m just singing for once,” Albarn said. “It’s pretty much just me singing, very sort of in the world of 2-D but kind of come out and he’s singing very expressively. I feel really good about it. I feel really really good about it.”
The Now Now is out now via Parlophone. Catch the DJ Koze and Superorganism remixes of “Humility above.
