Gorillaz continue their genre-blending assault with “Let Me Out,” enlisting Clipse rapper Pusha T & soulful singer Mavis “Mama Mavis” Staples. Damon Albarn’s brainchild has amassed quite a lyrical lineup, and Pusha T takes to the synth heavy beat with grace. The song’s unconventional structure features several sections, each one featuring a layered musical arrangement.

The final section of the track features a Gregorian chant style backdrop, with a cool, confident Mavis repeatedly warning us to get ready.
