    The ultra hip Lebanese band Mashrou' Leila--whose debut album is finally available on iTunes--just released a new track/video clip titled غدا يوم أفضل [Tomorrow Is a Better Day].  The song is dedicated to the Generation of Revolt/Revolution لى جيل الثورة or, as the band says, "this is our revolution."


    The band explains explains that this song/video clip is meant as a reinterpretation of the song "Clint Eastwood" by the Gorillaz (all rights reserved) and that the song was written and originally performed at Byblos Festival (Lebanon) in July 2010.

    Music produced by Mashrou3 Leila


    Here is the video clip/song followed by the lyrics in Arabic.


    Arabic Lyrics to the Song:



    غداً يومٌ أفضل
    مشروع ليلى

    إعادة تصور أغنية كلينت إيستوود للغوريلاز
    جميع حقوق الأغنية وأصحابها محترمة

    تصوير في بيبلوس: كريم غريب
    تصوير في الستديو: ياسمين صاروت
    مونتاج و إخراج: ياسمين صاروت
    إنتاج موسيقي: مشروع ليلى

    مبسوط، ما بني شي
    مخبى الشمس بكرشي
    مالي عازه، بس مش مطول
    غداً يومٌ أفضل
    يومٌ أفضل، يومٌ أفضل...

    بقى جاي يحكيني إبن الكلب عن كل قضايا العالم
    يا رح تتصفف بجانبه، يا أما انك ظالم
    بقى تتعلم تتفادى أحاديث بعمرها بتوديش،
    لا رح تنقذ أهلك ولا رح بتغير عالم،
    شنا الناس دايماً بتنتقم وعمرها ما بتحبش،
    قوم بلاش ما تنفصم أشرفلك بس تطنش،
    حتسيبك بوعظات جاي من عمارات من عاج،
    حكيتهم خيي بتستاهل وإلا بس طعاج

    And here is the song titled "Clint Eastwood" by the Gorillaz which inspired the Mashrou' Leila track (followed by the English lyrics):





    Oh oh oh oh oh
    I ain't happy,
    I'm feeling glad
    I got sunshine in a bag
    I'm useless but
    Not for long
    The future is coming on


    I ain't happy, I'm feeling glad
    I got sunshine, in a bag
    I'm useless,but not for long
    The future is coming on
    I ain't happy, I'm feeling glad
    I got sunshine, in a bag
    I'm useless, but not for long
    The future is coming on
    It's coming on
    It's coming on
    It's coming on


    Yeah... Ha Ha!
    Finally someone let me out of my cage
    Now, time for me is nothing cos I'm counting no age
    Now I couldn't be there
    Now you shouldn't be scared
    I'm good at repairs
    And I'm under each snare
    Intangible
    Bet you didn't think so I command you to
    Panoramic view
    Look I'll make it all manageable
    Pick and choose
    Sit and lose
    All you different crews
    Chicks and dudes
    Who you think is really kickin' tunes?
    Picture you gettin' down in a picture tube
    Like you lit the fuse
    You think it's fictional
    Mystical? Maybe
    Spiritual
    Hearable
    What appears in you is a clearer view cos you're too crazy
    Lifeless
    To know the definition for what life is
    Priceless
    For you because I put you on the hype shit
    You like it?
    Gunsmokin' righteous with one token
    Psychic among those
    Possess you with one go

    I ain't happy, I'm feeling glad
    I got sunshine, in a bag
    I'm useless,but not for long
    The future is coming on
    I ain't happy, I'm feeling glad
    I got sunshine, in a bag
    I'm useless, but not for long
    The future is coming on
    It's coming on
    It's coming on
    It's coming on

    The essence the basics
    Without it you make it
    Allow me to make this
    Childlike in nature
    Rhythm
    You have it or you don't that's a fallacy
    I'm in them
    Every sprouting tree
    Every child apiece
    Every cloud you see
    You see with your eyes
    I see destruction and demise
    Corruption in disguise
    From this fuckin' enterprise
    Now I'm sucking to your lies
    Through Russ, though not his muscles but the percussion he provides
    with me as a guide
    But y'all can see me now cos you don't see with your eye
    You perceive with your mind
    That's the inner
    So I'm gonna stick around with Russ and be a mentor
    Bust a few rhymes so mother fuckers
    Remember where the thought is
    I brought all this
    So you can survive when law is lawless
    Feelings, sensations that you thought were dead
    No squealing, remember
    (that it's all in your head)

    I ain't happy, I'm feeling glad
    I got sunshine, in a bag
    I'm useless, but not for long
    The future is coming on
    I ain't happy, I'm feeling glad
    I got sunshine, in a bag
    I'm useless, but not for long
    My future is coming on
    It's coming on
    It's coming on
    It's coming on
    It's coming on
    My future is coming on
    It's coming on
    It's coming on
    It's coming on
    It's coming on
    My future is coming on
    It's coming on
    It's coming on
    It's coming on
    It's coming on
    My future is coming on
    It's coming on
    It's coming on
    My future is coming on
    It's coming on
    It's coming on
    My future is coming on
    It's coming on
    It's coming on
    My future
