Episodes will reportedly be released spontaneously throughout the year, starting with episode one- Momentary Bliss featuring British rapper slowthai and British punk duo Slaves- released 30 January 2020.
The video features Jamie Hewlett’s iconic Gorillaz animation laid over footage of Damon Albarn in the studio with his collaborators, and the sketched Gorillaz members lounging around.
