After tapping slowthai and Slaves for their new single “Momentary Bliss” and the “Episode One” music video that followed, Gorillaz continue their Song Machine project with a trip out to sea for the new “Désolé” music video featuring GRAMMY Nominated Malian singer-songwriter Fatoumata Diawara.

The word sorry is the direct translation of the French word désolé, and matches perfectly with animated character Murdoc being left behind in the group’s recording studio to deal with grief in his own special way. The band took a trip to Lake Como in Italy where director Jamie Hewlett mixed subtle animations of looming monsters in the distant skyline. Meanwhile 2-D ventures out at sea with featured artist Fatoumata Diawara and Russel plays drums on the dock. There’s even a brief Nosferatu cameo.

“Making “Désolé” with Fatou was a real moment for me, you know?” Gorillaz drummer Russel said in a recent statement. “She’s an African Queen. This lady made the song what it is, beautiful, like life. What can I say about “Désolé?” They say sorry is the hardest word, but that’s not true… Try saying antidisestablishmentarianism with a mouth full of gluten-free cronuts on a speed boat without licking your lips.”

Watch the full “Désolé” visual above and stream the new offering below. In more music news, watch Justin Timberlake and SZA team-up for their new hit single “The Other Side.”
