We have long admired Manu Chao both as a musician and campaigner for human rights. When we were invited to do a track to mark the twenty year anniversary of his debut solo album, we were delighted to get involved. ⁠RyG

The track was recorded in our studio in Ixtapa and mixed by our friend Jim Monti.⁠

Gamma State is released TODAY on @amazonmusic.⁠

The first sketches of this song started a couple of years ago, when we started writing for the new album. We road-tested it on tour in Australia last year and it went down well with our fans there. However, as we zoomed in on recording 'Mettavolution' with Dave Sardy in Los Angeles, it became apparent that it didn't quite sit with the rest of the songs on the record; so we are very happy that 'Gamma State' is now finally coming out into the world.
