The latest installment in Gorillaz’ Song Machine series is here and it is paying tribute to the late Tony Allen. 

The Grammy-winning band has released a new track in honor of the late Afrobeat legend and Damon Albarn’s close friend, who died April 30 at the age of 79. 

The new song, “How Far?” featuring Allen, “was written and recorded with Skepta in London just before lockdown and is being shared immediately as a tribute to the spirit of a great man, Tony Allen,” the band said Saturday.

The first installment of the band’s “Song Machine” was released on January 30 with English rapper slowthai and the American band Slaves. “Song Machine” episodes 2 and 3 came at the end of February and the beginning of April, respectively.
