Gorillaz Oil feat. Stevie Nicks visualiser

Stevie Nicks becomes Gorillaz character in (fan-made) ‘Oil’ visualiser

Ask an you shall receive! You may recall back in 2022 Stevie told Zane Lowe that her only “demand” of Gorillaz was to be featured in a future video as an honorary Gorillaz character. And they (apparently a fan) have done just that, granting Stevie’s wish to be a Gorillaz family member. 

Watch the new fan-made visualiser for “Oil” featuring Stevie Nicks below.

Gorillaz - Oil ft. Stevie Nicks (Visualiser)


Producer Greg Kurstin, who produced Stevie’s track “Show Them the Way” (2020), sent the Gorillaz track “Oil” to Stevie. After listening to the song with her team, she told Greg, “Oh, I think this is now our new favorite song and haven’t even sung on it yet. But yes, I would love to do this.”

Stevie enjoyed working with the Gorillaz on the track. “I love [‘Oil’] so much,” Stevie told Zane Lowe in 2022. But this is the only thing I asked for. If you make a video of this, because that’s how I know about the Gorillaz is because of all their cartoon videos, I want to be in the “Oil” video. I want to be a Gorilla, and I wanna have like big false eyelashes…I wanna have blonde hair, right? So that’s what I said. This is my one ‘demand’ that I will make, so they’re doing it as we speak. I think that song is like somewhere between love and war because when it’s on like, ‘interlocking cluster bombs,’ right? And then there’s like, ‘fill it up with love’ — my favorite part. I’m like, it’s going from interlocking cluster bombs to fill it up with love, and I’m like somehow this clever songwriter…molded these two sides of this and I’m going like, is there a touch of Ukraine in here? I know, maybe, maybe not. Who knows. But [with] the whole ‘fill it up with love,’ I can still be this person. What does he say? At the end, he says, ‘But I’m not that cold, but I could forget you, but when I walk away I could forget you,’ and I’m like , well, that was kind of cold, actually. But okay because it’s what came to his head when he was writing that sentence, you know? So I learned those words and the fact that it’s called ‘Oil,’ I’m like is that water and oil? Or fire and oil? Or, you know, like ice and fire? What? Whatever it is, I can’t wait until it comes out because I’m so proud of it. Now… I was an honorary Heartbreaker, I was an honorary Foo Fighter, and now I’m an honorary Gorilla, I was so happy.”

On February 22, 2023, Stuart Harold “2-D” Pot (Damon Albarn) sent Stevie a letter, thanking her for making the track “very beautiful.”
