Trivia:

  • Song Machine is a web series / song collection released on Gorillaz' YouTube channel and on various music services. Each monthly episode serves as a music video for a newly recorded Gorillaz song. The episodes are accompanied by 'Machine Bitez' where Gorillaz briefly chat together and with their collaborators.
  • Russel described the project: "Song Machine is a whole new way of doing what we do. Gorillaz breaking the mold 'cos the mold got old. World is moving faster than a supercharged particle, so we've gotta stay ready to drop. We don't even know who's stepping through the studio next. Song Machine feeds on the unknown, runs on pure chaos. So whatever the hell's coming, we're primed and ready to produce like there's no tomorrow. Y'know, just in case..."
  • According to Damon Albarn, there will be 10-13 episodes/songs per each season of Song Machine. By February 2020, around six episodes had already been recorded for the project. The series will continue until the band "run out of ideas", according to Damon.
  • During the making of Song Machine, Season One, Veikko's Blur Page gathered comments from the people who were involved in the project.
  • Damon also worked with GuiltyBeatz, The Horrors, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Massive Attack, Sampa the Great and Tame Impala, but these collaborations didn't make it to the debut season of Song Machine.
