"Amarillo" is a double A-side single with "Revolving Doors" released by British alternative band Gorillaz from their fourth studio project, The Fall. The word "amarillo" comes from Spanish and it translates to "yellow".

Background[edit]

"Amarillo" was recorded in Amarillo, Texas on 23 October. The song features instrumentals from The Clash band member Mick Jones.

Critical reception[edit]

NME gave the single a positive review saying "Amarillo is a slow, yet euphoric song that finds Damon's reverb-laden voice evocatively recalling America's vast great interior. One of the more fully formed songs on the album, you get a vivid portrait of a songwriter from the British Isles getting his mind around one of the world's largest open spaces."[2]
