The first of the Gorillaz‘s many unreleased tracks has surfaced with a new video entitled “Sleeping Powder.” The song starts with a piano ballad then quickly transitions into an upbeat dance track. The video itself features a bunch of random scenes and horse imagery, with 2D imposed in front of them murmuring lyrics of drugs use.
Although Gorillaz recently released a vinyl collection of its album Humanz, which included 14 unreleased tracks, “Sleeping Powder” is not among them. It is most likely part of the many shelved songs that didn’t make their already stacked record. “I’m just sort of slowly going through all tunes that sort of didn’t work out and finishing them,” said creator Damon Albarn in a Zane Lowe interview. “I can stay in the game for at least another 18 months, I reckon.”
