Gorillaz have shared a video for the song “Tranz,” off their latest album The Now Now. Created and directed by Gorillaz visual artist Jamie Hewlett and animator and director Nicos Livesey, the video sees the cartoon band we know and love performing the song on a stage with psychedelic effects. The “live” shots are meant to simulate the feel of a "real" music video, in what the press release says is their first live performance since their 2010 MTV EMA's appearance. 

The Now Now follows last year’s Humanz, the band’s first album in seven years. Frontman Damon Albarn has already announced plans for another Gorillaz album but it won’t be out for at least another year. Watch the “Tranz” video below.
