Cee-Lo Promises New Gnarls Barkley CD By Xmas, Talks Upcoming Projects
In a recent interview with Billboard, the Atlanta bred artist confirmed that he has re-united with Goodie Mob for a new CD, set for release via his own Radiculture imprint. Cee-Lo parted ways with the group after 1999's World Party. Years later, in 2004, the Mob released One Monkey Don't Stop No Show without him.
Cee-Lo is also working on Gnarls Barkley's sophomore album with Danger Mouse which is slated for release in December. Cee-Lo told Billboard that the duo will not market or promote the project like they did with their debut album, St. Elsewhere. The duo will also not be embarking on a tour to support the album.
"Gnarls is something we want to salvage. It's not to be exploited or auctioned off to the highest bidder," Cee-Lo explained. "It will be revered and sought after. Somebody from my generation has to be the Dylan and Tom Waits - these iconic figures who never exploit themselves or stretch themselves too thin."
The Atlanta singer/rapper also announced that he has been working on his third solo album. No release date has been set.
