Gorillaz Pick "On Melancholy Hill" As Second 'Stylo' Single

Gorillaz have elected the strummy, la-la-laden sing-a-long "On Melancholy Hill" to be the second single off Plastic Beach. Although infectious reggae-lite track "Superfast Jellyfish," which features Super Furry Animals' Gruff Rhys as well as longtime Gorillaz collaborators De La Soul, was originally slated as the follow-up single to "Stylo," Gorillaz is apologizing for the switcheroo by releasing a tiny buttload of remixes as a download bundle on iTunes. The package includes "On Melancholy Hill" in m4a and video forms, along with Japanese Popstar and She Is Danger remixes of the track. Bonus: another "Stylo" remix, this time from Labyrinth and featuring Tinie Tempah. The bundle won't hit (digital) stores until July 26, but keep an eye out for that "On Melancholy Hill" vid, which should appear online sometime tomorrow and is directed by Jamie Hewlett, Damon Albarn's partner-in-crime for all things Gorillaz.

After seeing the Some Kind of Nature video I thought that was up next for sure...


awesome video. i definitely expected to see that as a single before "melancholy hill," which is an oddball choice even for gorillaz. honestly, i thought "superfast jellyfish" had already come out as the second single... i hear it on the radio all the freakin' time. not sure why they decided to push it back.

the second single is coming out now? feels like the album was released a long time ago already

good song. but Empire Ants is still the best song of the year

Superfast Jellyfish was definitely the most apparent choice for a second single... but I agree with brian, empire ants is probably my favourite on the lp


empire ants is definitely the best song on the lp... it might end up cracking my top 5 gorillaz songs ever, although that's tough to say.

lastly, the title of this story says that On Melancholy Hill is the second single from 'Stylo' not 'Plastic Beach'

This is a bummer. This is the only song I hate on the album. "Rhinestone Eyes" is a freaking BANGER. That would've made perfect sense.
