Gorillaz feat. Robert Smith, "Strange Timez"

Elton John, JPEGMAFIA, CHAI and more will be featured on 'Song Machine: Season One - Strange Timez.'

Gorillaz are highlighting the "Strange Timez" we're in with their new Robert Smith collaboration.

The song, which dropped earlier this week, is accompanied by a music video featuring the band's signature animated characters as astronauts on their way to the moon (painted with The Cure frontman's face).

"Strange Timez" marks the sixth installment of the group's Song Machine concept. The full collection, titled Song Machine: Season One - Strange Timez is out on Oct. 23 with physical releases on standard CD, vinyl and cassette; plus 17-track deluxe and super deluxe box sets.

Additionally, Gorillaz will be releasing a one-of-a-kind 210-page visual Almanac on the same day.
