France’s YELLE recently revealed the sweltering video for their song “J’Veux Un Chien” (“I Want a Dog”), the third single with a double-entendre.
Wanting a supportive partner (a dog) who respects one’s mind but also fulfills the dirtiest desires (not a dog!). The song is deep, dark and erotic. But yes, playful enough for your little cousin to sing. Brilliant. The music video, directed by Giant, is sophisticated yet simple, precise and powerful like the song.

Pretty much every time Gorillaz releases a song during the pandemic, we name it our Song of the Day.
And so it goes with “Strange Timez” by Gorillaz featuring Robert Smith, a combination you may have been waiting for ever since Gorillaz began collaborating with inspirational artists to make songs (which has been since their very first tune)!
