The latest 'episode' of Gorillaz's new project Song Machine keeps things simple. A series of headshots starting with guest artist Octavian, continuing with the familiar foursome, over mirrored POV car footage proves Jamie Hewlett's oft-repeated principle that less is more. 

Released during the Black Lives Matter protests following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, the video finishes with a quote from the great African-American writer James Baldwin: "Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced. It is certain, in any case, that ignorance, allied with power, is the most ferocious enemy justice can have."
