Cee Lo Green Talks New Album, Gnarls Barkley
January 10, 2014


Cee Lo Green
The multi-faceted Cee Lo Green plans to release a number of musical projects in 2014, starting with his new solo album, Girl Power. Speaking to Rolling Stone, Green says the record could be out as soon as late February or March of this year. "I want an onslaught of music this year," the Voice judge told the magazine.

Green says of the new album, "Technically and sonically, [I'm] working with new sounds. I could be all artsy-fartsy describing it, but to me this is bare bones rock and roll; which at heart is who I feel like I am. I feel like I'm a rock artist. I don't feel like I'm a pop artist. And I'm alt rock. I'm indie rock. I'm punk rock. Because it comes from the pots and pans. It's a lot of me, but I've got multiple personalities."

He also hopes for a return of Gnarls Barkley, his side project with producer/musician Danger Mouse, in 2014. "I didn't realize the importance of [a new Gnarls Barkley album] or the anticipation for it until recently," he told RS. "I was going through an airport at about 5:45am on the way to Atlanta and a guy from TMZ asked me would I be working on another Gnarls. And I was like, 'Yeah, next year.' I was a little dismissive because I don't want to get involved that early Ė but it just kind of went like wildfire. And I was like, 'Wow, okay. People are still interested to see what we could do.' And so am I. Gnarls Barkley is an alter ego and something like an out of body experience."

Additionally, his rap cohorts in Goodie Mob hope to release another album, while their 2013 record Age Against The Machine will be re-issued with extra tracks around the debut of his upcoming TBS reality show, Cee Lo Green's The Good Life.

Green is most excited about juggling his different musical identities, though, telling Rolling Stone, "If I can release singles that coexist and don't conflict with each other, then you'll hear something new from Gnarls [this year] that will run concurrent with what I'm doing solo and with Goodie Mob. Three totally different things."
