LISTEN: Gorillaz Share Awesome All-Female Playlist

For the past few months years, Gorillaz have been hinting that their “really fuckin’ special” new album will be on its way to our ears in 2017. The year is now here, meaning that the pressure’s now on to deliver on their promise. To kick things off for 2017, animated guitarist Noodle has shared an awesome all-female playlist featuring a selection of leading ladies who have inspired her during her search for “new sounds and new inspiration”. Posted to SoundCloud, the playlist includes tracks from Grimes, Empress Of, Kali Uchis, Fatima Al Qadiri and our own Hiatus Kaiyote, showcasing some of the most intriguing and unique voices across a wide range of genres – even ending on the famed theme song from Doctor Who, originally composed by Delia Derbyshire. Along with Evelyn Glennie, Derbyshire also narrates the continuous half hour mix.
