Video of the Moment #2269: Gorillaz (feat. Benjamin Clementine)

There’s been burblings for a while that Damon Albarn was planning to bring Gorillaz back. Well, the wait is now over. Last week, a new track featuring 2015 Mercury Prize winner Benjamin Clementine (nice quiff, son) surfaced. ‘Hallelujah Money’ is not a celebration of cash and the mobility it provides, but rather a vehicle for Clementine to point out that old chestnut that framed in a needlepoint sign in the Monkees’ flat that indeed, money is the root of all evil. The promo, directed by Gorillaz and Giorgio Testi, dropped on the eve of the inauguration of Donald Trump last week, which can’t have been merely a coincidence. Watch the promo below. Naturally, we expect that Albarn’s efforts aren’t for naught and that an album is on the horizon sometime this year. Watch this space. For past and admittedly old coverage of Gorillaz on TGTF, go here.
