Hollywood studio version has been posted on Youtube, but sounds like its the same one that was posted and taken down earlier in the week as sounds a bit flat and mono sounding, or at least I hope it is... Other than that it sounds alright in my opinion.

It kind of sounds as if it has just been recorded with a mic, but I like the sound of it and I'd imagine the officially released version will have a bit more punch to it.

I actually like Hollywood. I don't like it as much as I like the other songs, but I like it. I thought I was going to hate it because I didn't like anything off Humanz.

'Humanz' wasn't memorable, to my ears. Maybe more experimental than commercial.

And maybe that is why another Gorillaz album is coming so soon after. Looking forward to hearing it :mrgreen:
That's kind of what I've been thinking. Almost a form of damage control? *shrug*

I didn't even think Humanz was that experimental. It just wasn't very good.

I can do experimental no problem, but when the songs themselves and the production aren't good, no experimentation can save it.

Really looking forward to the new one.

Top tune. Reminds me of Sex Murder Party, which I'm a big fan of. Too bad I was expecting a music video along with it, not just a visualiser. :(

Yep, was expecting a video as well. Alas, another rumor that didn't end up being true. Hollywood has been growing on me since I first heard the leak. The music itself helps, it's really groovy (as I've said about every song from The Now Now thus far!) Snoop's verse is easily my favorite part.

I'm not a fan of Hollywood, but the outro is really good.

I though the studio version of Hollywood would sound a little empty but once again they have done a great job. I think the producer has matched the music similar to DM on Demon Days.
