Gorillaz – Hollywood Ft Snoop Dogg & Jamie Principle
Gorillaz Tap Snoop Dogg & Jamie Principle For Examination Of “Hollywood” The new Gorillaz album, The Now Now, doesn’t drop until June 29th, but the cartoon band consisting of 2-D, Noodle, Russell, and Murdoc Ace continue to release new tracks off the project.
Despite the levity that the name would suggest, this song is the opposite of joyous. A lumbering bass line trudges the song forward, while a rising brass line creates an air of despair and hopelessness. Like Sisyphus attempting to push the boulder up the hill, the song invokes the image that however the journey will never come to a close, and if it does, it likely wont end well.
