Lockdown has had a huge influx of virtual performances, so artists are needing to get creative to stand out from the masses. Luckily, creativity is Gorillaz frontman Damon Albarn’s specialty. 

On Jimmy Kimmel Live! this week, Damon stepped up for a live rendition of his Gorillaz track ‘Aries’. For the first time in the band’s history, he performed a duet with one of his animated characters, 2-D, “over Zoom”. 

The UK producer played the piano and sang from his home while 2-D’s location flipped between the Taj Mahal and a room with someone doing yoga. 

Check out the full performance of ‘Aries’ above.
