Gorillaz

Earlier this week, we posted a radio rip of “DoYaThing,” the new Converse-sponsored Gorillaz/James Murphy/Andre 3000 collab. Despite an on-fire Andre verse, the original version of that track felt a bit lopsided and awkward, like these guys were trying to cram as many ideas as possible into a single track. But talking to Pitchfork yesterday, Murphy and Albarn revealed that there’s also a 13-minute version of the song that the trio recorded live on their last day of the studio, and we’ve got a stream of that version below. And holy shit. There’s not a thing awkward about this one; they figured it out.

On this version, the track builds to a howling extended climax, with Andre wailing “I’m The Shit” over and over like a demented ’60s soul howler while the track transforms into an LCD Soundsystem-style krautrock freakout. Listen to it below; it’s well worth a quarter-hour of your time.

The original version of the song is up for free download at the Converse site.
