Yes, lawd! After teasing us with Instagram updates, mixes, comic books and promises of a new album this year, Gorillaz have finally released a new song, Hallelujah Money. It's is the first new material we've heard from the band since 2010's The Fall; that's a hell of a long time between drinks. Comprised of Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett, and virtual members Murdoc Niccals, 2D, Russel Hobbs and Noodle, Gorillaz have been sorely missed these past several years. According to the YouTube description, the release of Hallelujah Money has deliberately aligned with the US presidential Inauguration, with it stating:
"The band has issued this song on the eve of the Inauguration of President-Elect Donald Trump to serve as commentary on a politically-charged, historical moment."
Hallelujah Money features Mercury Prize-winning musician and poet Benjamin Clementine and, although we're just one spin down, we think it's defs worth the wait.
Fingers crossed this signals that their long-awaited album is going to see the light of day very, very soon.
