Last week, Gorillaz released their latest album ‘Cracker Island’, which features a collaboration with former Fleetwood Mac singer Stevie Nicks.

Before appearing on the track which you can check out below, Stevie Nicks had just “one demand”, which was to be turned into one of the virtual group’s caricatures.

“I want to be a Gorilla, and I want to have big, false eyelashes, and I want to have blonde hair, right?”, Nicks said. “And so they’re doing it as we speak”.


The track features on Gorillaz’s eight studio record, which arrived last Friday (February 24).

Check it out for yourselves below.

Granting Nicks’ wish, Gorillaz shared a “fact card” via Twitter, confirming her “freakiness”, “cult ranking”, and “G factor”.

The virtual band’s lead singer 2D played by Damon Albarn also added this personal note.

“Just writing a little letter to say ‘alright,’ which I’ve now done, also I wanted to say I am a big fan of yours and that you made the song we did together very beautiful and the whole record is a different record cos you are on it. Have a nice week, fingers crossed for world peace and please pop round anytime if you fancy a cuppa or game of pacman”. 

Elsewhere, Damon Albarn also added that it would be a dream to collaborate with Kate Bush.
