Seems like there's a lot of love for it on social media. A lot of reference to it sounding like Gorillaz.

Maybe it's caught more attention because of the disappointment of Humanz.

I don't see how Humanz disappointment could give it that big of a bump, though. But it's the best theory I've heard. Mysterious!

I still don't completely hear how it's similar sounding to the Gorillaz, but it does have that atmospheric up-lifting party vibe to it that the other "TMW" tracks lack. It has such a slight reggae/ska feel to it and always manages to put an IMMENSE smile on my face!

Weller has good taste! I can't wait to read Q's entire section on Damon at 50.
