Gorillaz - Sleeping Powder

The official music video for the Gorillaz song Sleeping Powder, a non-album single. It was released on 8 June 2017 along with the single itself.


The video depicts 2-D playing a harpsichord as reality melts around him; leaving him sitting alone as the harpsichord he was playing disappears as well. The video both starts and ends with 2-D sat at a harpsichord, playing the same melody each time.[1]
