A new Gorillaz song is finally here! After months of teasing new material we finally have received the groups first album single "Hallelujah Money" featuring UK vocalist and songwriter Benjamin Clementine released with a new video.
"Hallelujah Money" comes along with a trippy visual that has the featured artist Benjamin Clementine appearing in front of many different visuals including everything from cartoons to clowns to old westerns. The soulful tune has a peaceful, cinematic backing instrumental with some of Albarn’s vocals in the background as the beat switches a couple times incorporating hard-hitting kick drums and gentle funky synthesizers.
Gorillaz epic return has brought us multimedia stories bringing us up to speed on the fictional band member’s backstories as well as new mixes and interviews with the cartoon band members. Now we’ve been blessed with the first single in six years, which has fittingly come on the night before Donald Trump’s inauguration as the group tweeted “Dark time – u need someone to look up to … Here’s a lightning bolt of truth in a black night. Now piss on! New stuff won’t write itself.”
