The music video for Désolé premiered on the Gorillaz YouTube channel on February 27, 2020 at 11:00AM EST as Episode Two. [1] The song features Fatoumata Diawara.


Désolé – the second episode of Song Machine – features multiple Grammy Award nominee and Malian superstar Fatoumata Diawara and sees our intrepid heroes teleport themselves via a Kong Studios portal to Lake Como, Italy. Being Episode 2, it accompanies 2D boating on Lake Como with Damon Albarn and Fatoumata Diawara and Noodle and Russel playing their respective instruments at the dock, while accidentally leaving their bandmate Murdoc behind, lonely at the Kong Studios. An accident? Or possibly not… [2]
