    Gorillaz have released the first song from their new record and it's an anti-Trump track titled "Hallelujah Money" featuring Mercury Prize winner Benjamin Clementine. It's the first new material released by the band in six years.

    The accompanying music videos features Clementine crooning the theatrical tune in front of a screen broadcasting a montage of clips, including innocent cartoons, KKK rallies, and murderous clowns. Just before the halfway mark, Damon Albarn's mechanized voies takes over from Clementine and sings alone, before Clementine returns and delivers a spoken-word breakdown over a sparse beat and Albarn's mechanized voice filters back out of the background.

    Gorillaz — Albarn and illustrator Jamie Hewlett's cartoon musical project — are at work on their first record since 2011's The Fall. The group is expected to release the album later this year, however, "Hallelujah Money" is not its first single.

    For the last several month members of the cartoon band have been updating fans about their recent journeys and various histories via social media. Most recently, guitarist Noodle shared a playlist inspired by "kick-a** women". Featured in the playlist are Grimes, Empress Of, Laurie Anderson, and many more. In a note on Instagram, the animated shredder said, "In search of new sounds and new inspiration, I found these kick-a** women who in their own individual ways are true pioneers in the writing, production and creation of MUSIC. They have inspired me, and I hope they inspire you too."
