London-based group Gorillaz made a triumphant return back in the summer with two tracks – “Cracker Island” featuring Thundercat, and “New Gold” featuring Tame Impala, along with an announcement that their next album is due to drop in early 2023.

After a few months of silence, the “Clint Eastwood” hitmakers have returned this Friday (November 4) with another new track, this one called “Baby Queen,” inspired by co-creator Damon Albarn’s encounter with a real-life princess back in 1997.

As Uproxx notes, the royal figure in question in Sirivannavari of Thailand, who has been a muse for the artist for several years now. “The reason I’ve written a song about it is because I had a dream about this princess very recently; she’d grown up and we spent time in my dream together, her as a woman,” Albarn told the LA Times in early 2022.

“Down in the abyss where the night / Never turns to daylight / She kept me in a polaroid / That was kept upon her wall,” the magical track goes as Gorillaz reflect on the undeniable allure of the “Baby Queen.”

Lyrics

[Verse 1: 2-D]
I met the princess from Thailand again
She had grown up
Into a queen
Down in the abyss where the night
Never turns to daylight
She kept me in a Polaroid
That was pinned up on her wall
Under Garuda’s mirror lights
She takes flight
Yeah the kid’s alright

[Chorus: 2-D]
You’ve grown up
Baby Queen
You’ve grown up
Baby Queen (You’ve grown up)

[Verse 2: 2-D]
She fell into the generals (Oh, Baby Queen)
On the watch all around her
I fell into the vanity
The mirrored lights of our dreams

[Chorus: 2-D]
You’ve grown up (Baby Queen)
In my dreams where you’ve been (Dreams, dreams, dreams)
You’ve grown up (Baby Queen)
In my dreams where you’ve been (Dreams, dreams, dreams)
(Baby Queen)
In my dreams where you’ve been (Dreams, dreams, dreams)
You’ve grown up (Baby Queen)
In my dreams where you’ve been (Dreams, dreams, dreams)
You’ve grown up (Baby Queen)
In my dreams where you’ve been (Dreams, dreams, dreams)
You’ve grown up (Baby Queen)
In my dreams where you’ve been (Dreams, dreams, dreams)
You’ve grown up (Baby Queen)
In my dreams where you’ve been (Dreams, dreams, dreams)

[Outro: 2-D]
Baby Queen
You were in my dreams
