Gorillaz Unveil Premiere and Playlist

By Michele Flannery

Music Manager

Today's world premiere and celebrity playlist is presented by a cartoon created by Blur's Damon Albarn and artist Jamie Hewlett. Please welcome Murdoc, the animated bassist for virtual band Gorillaz, as he takes time out of his busy schedule to present the premiere of "Stylo" and also share his favorite videos on YouTube. So what does this fictional musician like to peep on the site? A surprising mix of underwater adventures, Nigerian soul and survivalist tips, along with a few musicians who will also appear on the new Gorillaz album, Plastic Beach.

Here Murdoc explains his selections:

Gorillaz join the ranks of acts like U2Tiesto and OK Go who've chosen YouTube to unleash their video premieres. Murdoc's picks also make for a colorful addition to our Celebrity Playlist channel, currently dominated by Hollywood film stars and celebrity chefs. Enjoy!
