Elton John is featured on a new song from Gorillaz called “The Pink Phantom.”

Embedded below, the track is featured on the cartoon group’s new studio album Song Machine: Season One. The video even includes a cartoon version of Sir Elton in the style of the Gorillaz animation.

John said in social media posts promoting the song, “I’ve always been a Gorillaz fan so when Damon [Albarn] reached out and asked me to get involved it was a no-brainer. The way the song turned out is just great.”

He added, “Even working remotely (I was in London and he was in Devon), collaborating with Damon on this was such an engaging and creative process. I’m very, very happy this came about and I hope you enjoy the track.”

Song Machine: Season One is due out October 23.
