Gorillaz Release New Anti-Donald Trump Single “Hallelujah Money”

New music today!! Gorillaz released a new track from their upcoming studio album that is due out sometime this year. They haven’t released an album since 2011’s The Fall. It seems they shared it specifically before Inauguration Day as an underlying message to us as we get ready to enter into Trump’s horribly dark and oppressed America. In an interview the bands virtual guitarist Murdoc said “In these dark times, we all need someone to look up to. Me. That’s why I’m giving you this new Gorillaz song..”. It was also pointed out that the video for the track takes place in a warped version of Trump Hotel. Interesting right? I’m not sure how I feel about the song itself but I love the message and I’m excited to hear the rest of the album when it drops. You can read the lyrics below

Here is our tree
That primitively grows
When we go to bed
Scare crows from the Far a-East
Come to eat its tender fruits
I have thought that the
Best way to protect our tree
Is by building walls
Walls like unicorns in full glory and galore
Even stronger than the walls of Jericho
Be glad then my friend
That in a few
We shall reap abundantly
What we’d always dreamt of havin
Enough of the starvin
It is love
That is the root of all evil
Not our tree
And thank you my friend
For trusting me

Hallelujah Money
Hallelujah Money

How will we know
When the morning comes
We are still humanz.
How will we know?
How will we dream?
How will we love?
How will we know?

Don’t worry my friend
If this be the end
Then so shall it be
Until we say so
Nothing will move
Ah, don’t worry
It is not against our morals
It’s legally tender
Touch my friend
What the whole world, and whole beasts of nations desire: power

Hallelujah Money
Cross the chemtrail sun
Hallelujah Money
