First rule of the internet—all previews, clips and snippets must be followed with the full version of a song. So here is “DoYaThing,” the collaboration between Gorillaz, Andre 3000 and James Murphy done for Converse’s Three Artists series. Is the song good (does anyone ask that anymore?)? It’s no one’s finest work, and definitely not the sum of it’s parts, surprising if only because Gorillaz has a history of excellent collaborations. But we still like to hear Andre on the mic again, especially with the double-time/half-time tempo.
So that’s it, right? More marketing-driven musical mediocrity gone past? Not so fast. There’s still a music video coming Feb 29, along with an extended mega-version. So, ya know, the video will probably be clever.
