Désolé

Gorillaz and Malian musician Fatoumata Diawara venture to scenic Lake Como in Italy in the new video for their collaboration, “Désolé.” The track and video mark the second installment of the animated outfit’s “Song Machine” series.

“Désolé,” which means “sorry” in French, boasts a simmering groove that takes a delightfully dramatic turn toward the end with a steady swell of strings and horns. Diawara and Damon Albarn share vocal duties on the track, singing in English, French and Bambara.
