Watch Gorillaz' Video for New 'Hallelujah Money' Single

Can you catch all the topical references in Gorillaz' new song Hallelujah Money?

As long has been promised, Gorillaz has returned with their first new music in over six years, and like most of their music, it features a special guest.

"Hallelujah Money" sees United Kingdom poet and singer Benjamin Clementine taking lead vocals, singing and reciting an eerie meditation on the state of power in the world. And the music video, directed by Giorgio Testi and Gorillaz, is seemingly set in a gold-plated elevator inside Trump Tower while various apocalyptic images (including the La Candelaria brotherhood in Spain) flash in the background.

The first new song in over half a decade comes in the form of 'Hallelujah Money, ' a collaboration with Benjamin Clementine, which was planned for delivery the day before Donald Trump's inauguration.

In these dark times, we all need someone to look up to. Me. Mercury Prize victor Benjamin Clementine. That's why I'm giving you this new Gorillaz song, a lightning bolt of truth in a black night.You're welcome. "Now (expletive) on! New stuff won't write itself".
