Gorillaz treated NHS workers and their families to a free show at London's O2 Arena on Tuesday night (August 10) as a thank you for all their selfless work during the pandemic, and the set did not disappoint.

Aside from bringing out a handful of guests, including The Cure's Robert Smith for their collaboration "Strange Timez" and New Order's Peter Hook for "Aires," the band also debuted three new songs: “Meanwhile” featuring Jelani Blackman, “Jimmy Jimmy” featuring AJ Tracey, and “De Ja Vu” featuring Alicai Harley.

Damon Albarn recently revealed that Gorillaz were working on new music, so maybe this is a sneak peek?

See them perform the new songs and check out the full setlist below.
