Cloud Of Unknowing
by Gorillaz (featuring Bobby Womack)

Album: Plastic Beach (2010)
  • This track features soul legend Bobby Womack, who also appears on "Stylo." Bass player Murdoc explained on the group's website: "This track's a mirror of the opener, a final reflection on the Plastic Beach. Bobby Womack's performance on this song can still bring tears to my eyes. That mixture of hope and uncertainty in his voice – the age and the experience, the fear and the joy... 'scuse me.
    This song, like the Who's 'Love Reign O'er Me' is the moment that gathers together the events of the album - and pauses for reflection: 'Waiting to see what the morning brings, it may bring sunshine on its wings."
