Gorillaz ‘On Melancholy Hill’ Video

It’s a good job that Damon Albarn accepted Michael Eavis’ plea to step into Bono size 6 Cuban heels at Glastonbury this Friday, because his band Gorillaz have a new album to plug and there’s nothing like a headlining festie show to help sell a few 100,000 more copies.

The latest single from their 3rd long player ‘Plastic Beaches' is ‘On Melancholy Hill’ and they have quite literally just this second released an eye catching video to accompany it. Thanks to a mixture of bliss tuneage, courtesy of Damon, and staggeringly beautiful animation from his partner in grime Jamie Hewitt, it’s easily one of the finest visuals you’ll see this year.

Damon has also been doing the rounds this week to promote the single/album/Glasto and, whilst at Xfm he let loose that every single one of their collaborations over all three of their albums WILL happen on Friday night i.e. De la Soul, Mos Def, Shaun Ryder, Gruff Rhys of Super Furry Animals, the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Snoop Dogg, Mark E Smith, Lou Reed to only name a few.

Such a shame U2 had to pull out isn’t it? Watch the fine ‘On Melancholy Hill’ here
