“Hallelujah Money” is the animated supergroup’s first new single in years.
Gorillaz has just released the first single off its new forthcoming album. Coming in video format, “Hallelujah Money” is a politically charged anthem that features UK artist and poet Benjamin Clementine. That it’s coming a day before Donald Trump’s inauguration in the United States seems to be no accident.
The video comes with a statement from the band’s bassist, Murdoc: “In these dark times, we all need someone to look up to. Me. That’s why I’m giving you this new Gorillaz song, a lightning bolt of truth in a black night. You’re welcome. Now piss on! The new album’s not gonna write itself.” Watch the video below.
