Members of the British virtual band Gorillaz unexpectedly presented a new mini-album «Meanwhile» on the Web.
The EP includes only three tracks «Meanwhile», «Jimmy Jimmy» and «Deja vu». In addition to the musicians from Gorillaz, singer Alikai Harley, rappers AJ Tracy and Jelani Blackman, as well as Jamaican reggae star Barrington Levy took part in the recording of the album.
According to RollingStone, the mini-album is dedicated to the Notting Hill Carnival, which is celebrated annually on the streets of London. However, this year one of the most fun and colorful events of the summer was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The release took place a little more than a year after the release of «Song Machine» with the participation of Robert Smith, Elton John, Ann Clark, Slowthai and Beck Hansen.
