Previous collaborations in the series have seen rapper Soulja Boy, Andrew WK and Matt And Kim record together, while Graham Coxon, Paloma Faith and ex-Coral guitarist Bill Ryder-Jones came together to record a track in 2010.
Last week a 13 minute version of the new Gorillaz track appeared online. The cartoon band’s Jamie Hewlett has also designed a new shoe range for Converse to go with the track as well as the accompanying video.
Earlier this month, Murphy gave NME the inside word on the recording sessions for the track, commenting: “Everybody was really respectful of each other. We just tried to get out of each other’s way.”
He added: “I’ve never done this before ‘cos I felt it pulled energy from (LCD Soundsystem). But I’m not cheating on them. It’s not musical monogamy anymore.”
