    Supergroup The Good The Bad & The Queen have broken off a second single, “Gun to the Head”, in the lead-up to their new album, Merrie LandOn the upbeat, almost whimsical, number, Blur/Gorillaz’s Damon Albarn, The Clash’s Paul Simonon, The Verve’s Simon Tong, and Fela Kuti drummer Tony Allen make a “case for love.”

    “We don’t care because we’re all animal lovers/ We like to share our lives with them,” Albarn sings. “Required of this song is a case for love/ When everything else that keeps us together conspiring to tear us apart.”

    Check it out below via its corresponding music video, which stars humans creepily dressed as puppets.
