Yesterday the kind folks with Coachella announced Gorillaz as the big Sunday headliner, right above Pavement and Thom Yorke. Today, Gorillaz have us listening to “Stylo”, the first single off their forthcoming LP, Plastic Beach. We also got a peak at the artwork and tracklist.

Upon first listen, it’s evident that “Stylo” is no “Feel Good, Inc.” While the inclusion of the legendary Bobby Womack (The Valentinos, Sam Cooke, The Rolling Stones) and his glorious baritone wailing only enhances the track’s appeal, Mos Def’s contribution is ultimately uninteresting — a depressing notion, really, as last year’s The Ecstatic was my favorite rap record. But on a positive note, “Stylo”‘s slick and slippery production is instantly likable and has near-endless replay value.
