More details have been unveiled about Cee Lo Green's Christmas album, Cee Lo's Magic Moment, which is due on October 30. It will feature a number of special guests, including The Muppets, who join Green on an original song called "All I Need Is Love." Cee Lo's Magic Moment also finds Green joining his The Voice co-star Christina Aguilera for the seasonal favorite "Baby, It's Cold Outside," and Rod Stewart shows up for "Merry Christmas, Baby." Another guest on the album is acclaimed a capella group Straight No Chaser, who join Green on "You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch."
"You'll really enjoy it," Green told Rolling Stone recently about the album. "It's definitely a great soulful spin on Christmas classics. I did a version of 'You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch.' That says a lot. Just ponder on that." Green also tackles songs like "White Christmas," "Run Rudolph Run," "All I Want For Christmas" and "Silent Night."
In other news, Rod Stewart, The Muppets and past contestants from The Voice will join Green for Cee Lo and Friends, a one-time show to be held at Las Vegas' Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on October 10. The one-time concert will be filmed and will premiere November 26 on The Warner Sound, Warner Music Group's original YouTube channel.
Most recently, Green announced that he will take a break from The Voice for season four in order to focus on his many other projects. The singer/songwriter is working on a new solo LP, an album with Goodie Mob, and he's planning a residency in Las Vegas that is set to premiere on Wednesday, February 27, 2013. He also has a memoir and a sitcom in the works for NBC.
