Gorillaz are back with their latest instalment of their Song Machine project. This time, it's a song called "Désolé," and it features esteemed Malian musician Fatoumata Diawara.

The song marks the second in the series and comes alongside a new video, which is of course an animated one.

In a statement, Gorillaz drummer Russel said of the new collaboration:

Making "Désolé" with Fatou was a real moment for me, you know. 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.

Check out "Désolé" below.

The first episode in the Song Machine series came earlier this month with "Momentary Bliss" — a track that featured slowthai and Slaves.
