kiwihead was first with the news that The Sun newspaper (notorious in recent years for its accurate Damon-related exclusives) reveals in an article in today's edition (and online now) that the Gorillaz Converse single will be called 'DoYaThing' and will feature collaborators Andre 3000 (of Outkast) and James Murphy (of LCD Soundsystem). The single will be released on 23rd February.
