Beck recently teamed up with Gorillaz on Jimmy Kimmel Live on April 19. The singer-songwriter joined Damon Albarn for a rendition of their ‘Cracker Island’ collaboration ‘Possession Island’.

The live take saw Albarn singing the opening on piano before Beck joined him on vocals for the remainder of the song.
They performed the track for the first time at a gig at Los Angeles’ Forum last September. Beck also previously appeared on ‘The Valley Of The Pagans’ on Gorillaz’s 2020 album ‘Song Machine: Season One – Strange Timez’ .
‘Cracker Island’ arrived back in February as Gorillaz’ eighth studio album, with a deluxe edition following just a week later. In a four-star review of the album, NME’s Thomas Smith wrote that “Albarn and his team appear unburdened by living up to a concept, and instead turn in a consistently enjoyable record that shows why they remain relevant so far into their career”.
