Well, what a treat this is. Gorillaz are back and so, of course, is Jamie Hewlett's wonderful cartoon version of the band. Murdoc, 2D, Noodle and Russel are at once familiar, but Hewlett never lets things stay entirely the same. There's always a slight variation on what's gone before - and this in this case he's managed to go both forward and back.

In some ways they are more like the original (mostly 2D) version, that popped out at the turn of the century, would you believe. Russel, for instance, is not a 30 foot giant any more. But then they've also entered a whole new dimension - the video comes in two versions, and one of them is the VR/360 version of the adventure that has the band enter what appears like the classic haunted house – again, shades of the original Clint Eastwood video – before slipping through a portal into deep space, next to Saturn.

Produced once again through Passion Pictures, the VR version of Saturnz Barz was developed through Google's own VR studio, Google Spotlight Stories - and the video is 'supported by YouTube'. And the VR version really is something to behold.
