Mantra of The Cosmos have shared their cosmic single Gorilla Guerilla.

The supergroup - comprised of Shaun Ryder (Happy Mondays, Black Grape), Zak Starkey (The Who, Oasis), Andy Bell (Oasis, Ride) and Bez (Happy Mondays, Black Grape) - have unveiled their first sonic offering, following their intimate live debut at The Box, London last night (5th June).

With it comes an animated psychedelic video, which was created by Shaun Ryder's son Ollie.

Son of Beatle Ringo Starr, Zak Starkey called the track "a fantastic psychedelic groove from a band of misfits, outsiders and innovators,” whilst frontman Ryder adds: “It’s a f***ing blast mate!! It’s great when we’re not all irate.”

Speaking on the project as a whole, former Oasis guitarist Andy Bell said: “It’s a pleasure to be part of Mantra of the Cosmos. Four like minded souls who get off on the same music.”

Manchester legend Bez simply adds: “I always knew the best was yet to come".
