Gorillaz have released their new single 'DoYaThing' as a free download - scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to listen to the song.

The track, which is a collaboration with OutKast's Andre 3000 and LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy, is available from Converse.com/doyathing.

The song was recorded for Converse's 'Three Artists. One Song' campaign, which has previously brought together rapper Soulja Boy, Andrew WK and Matt And Kim to record a collaboration, and also saw Graham Coxon, Paloma Faith and ex-Coral guitarist Bill Ryder-Jones collaborate to record a track together in 2010.

Gorillaz' Jamie Hewlett has also designed a new shoe range for Converse to go with the track, and is also working on an accompanying video. Singer Damon Albarn, meanwhile, recently commented that a 12-minute unedited version of the track would also be released in the future.

To celebrate their 10th anniversary last year, Gorillaz released the career-spanning compilation 'The Singles Collection: 2001 – 2011'. Albarn also revealed last November that he had been meeting up regularly with Blur to record new material, while producer William Orbit hinted that the band could soon start work on a new studio album.

The Britpop legends performed together at the Brit Awards earlier this week (February 21), where they were honoured with the Outstanding Contribution To Music Award.

To read an exclusive interview with Blur, where they discuss the possibility of recording a new album and their plans beyond this summer, pick up the new issue of NME, which is on UK newsstands and available digitally now.
