Gorillaz premiere new track 43 replies

After years of not releasing music, the famed animated group release their first track in 6 years after 2011's acclaimed Plastic Beach. The song "Hallelujah Money" is portrayed as an apocalyptic and anti-Trump track. The song features English poet Benjamin Clementine doing most of the vocal work. The accompanying video sees Clementine singing from Trump Tower, with some rather odd and hyper imagery being presented in the background, all of this with a Spongebob reference to end off the video.

R.I.P. William Onyeabor 7 replies

Nigerian musician and businessman William Onyeabor died in his home in Nigeria on Monday, January 16. He was 70 years old.

After recording and self-releasing a number of groundbreaking synthesizer-heavy Afro-funk records in the 1970s and 1980s, Onyeabor converted to Christianity and abandoned recording to pursue a business career. He was named the West African Industrialist of the Year in the late 1980s. His music work remained largely unrecognized in the world at large until 2013, when Luaka Bop released the compilation album Who Is William Onyeabor? as part of their World Psychedelic Classics series. That album was followed in 2014 by a comprehensive career-retrospective box set, also released by Luaka Bop.

In August 2016, Corgan mentioned on a Facebook video that he and Wtrezky have finally reestablished communication saying "I’ve been in communication with D’arcy for the first time in 16 or 17 years, it’s awesome to have my friend back."
