Andromeda is track #10 of the Gorillaz's fourth album, Humanz. It was released March 23rd, 2017. It features the singer D.R.A.M. The same track was later re-mixed and then released with the primary vocals coming from D.R.A.M. It was nominated for Best Dance Recording at the 2018 Grammy Awards.
The video starts out with a planet in the middle of an asteroid belt just standing there, dead when the beat starts up. As soon as 2-D starts singing the first verse, a meteor hits the planet which causes the planet to illuminate. The planet keeps moving in place, until D.R.A.M sings then it turns purple.
As the beat rises, another meteor hits the planet which causes the planet to illuminate even more. Which gives it more of a purple, and then blue look. The planet and the Asteroid Belt moves faster as the second verse appears.
The final meteor hits the planet and you guessed it, illuminates the planet and giving it the look as it was before the first meteor hit. The Asteroid Belt moves slower after the third verse is sung both by 2-D and D.R.A.M and such ends the video.
- In Greek mythology, Andromeda was an Ethiopian princess rescued by the hero Perseus. A northern constellation is named after her as is the Andromeda galaxy. It translates to “to be mindful of a man” from the Greek element ανηρ (aner) “man” (genitive ανδρος) combined with μεδομαι (medomai) “to be mindful of”. Space themes are found throughout Humanz. However, Damon Albarn explained it is named after an old soul club in 1980s Colchester.
