Gorillaz ft Elton John & 6LACK 'The Pink Phantom' by Jamie Hewlett, Tim McCourt, Max Taylor

David Knight - 14th Oct 2020

Episode Seven of Gorillaz' ongoing Song Machine heralds their most famous and surprising collaborator yet in the (animated) form of Sir Elton, in a piano-playing duet with 2D, while a confused Murdoc chases the eponymous Pink Phantom. 

Like everything else in the Song Machine series it's fab, but just a little bit more fluffy and romantic, and funny, than anything else. And further confirmation of the genius of Jamie Hewlett, ably abetted by Tim McCourt and Max Taylor of The Line. 

It's almost as good as Elton's rendition of "I'm Dill Danding" (sic) during lockdown. But frankly, nothing is as good as that.
