Cee Lo Green Plans for New Solo, Goodie Mob, and Gnarles Barkley Material
Cee Lo Green already has a prominent position as a judge for The Voice and last year saw a successful return of his former group Goodie Mob. In a recent Rolling Stone interview, Green reveals this is just the beginning and has far more planned for 2014.
What should listeners expect? Green starts off talking about solo album Girl Power, with which he’s narrowing down the tracklist from about 40 or 50 cuts to 13.
He further tells listeners to expect a wide range of sounds on this release: "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."
The solo album may drop in February or March, but that’s not all Green has plans for. Later in the interview, he spoke about Goodie Mob having enough material to put out a follow-up to Age Against the Machine, as well as for the re-release of last year’s album.
Additionally, fan interest after a TMZ question caused Green to revisit Gnarles Barkley. Although he didn’t say any specific tracks or releases in the works, he hinted that something may come in the future: “I don't want to get involved that early – 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."
