Gorillaz Releases New Song “Baby Queen”
British virtual band Gorillaz released a new song “Baby Queen” on November 4, 2022.
The song is the third single off of their upcoming 8th studio album “Cracker Island”, following "Cracker Island" featuring Thundercat and “New Gold” featuring Tame Impala and Bootie Brown.
The track was written by D. Albarn and G. Kurstin. Produced by Remi Kabaka Jr. and Gorillaz.
The band founder Damon Albarn said of the song, “I’m writing and recording a song about an incident when I was in Thailand and met the crown princess. This was November ’97. She was only 14 at the time, and she came to see us, and due to the very specific role the royal family play in Thailand, they put a throne next to the mixing board for her to sit in, surrounded by I don’t know how many soldiers. “Song 2” started and she stood on her throne and stage-dived into the crowd. The reason I’ve written a song about it is because I had a dream about this princess very recently; she’d grown up and we spent time in my dream together, her as a woman. So there you go: 1997 was a long time, but at the moment it’s not.”
The new album is set to be released on February 24, 2023.
