Cee-Lo to Release ‘The Lady Killer’ a Month Early
Due to popular demand, Cee-Lo is planning on unveiling his third solo album, 'The Lady Killer,' a month earlier than expected. The singer/rapper is bumping up the soul-drenched offering from December 7 to November 9.
The move comes on the heels of his unexpected hit 'F--- You.' Upon its mid-August release, the feel-good track became a viral sensation, spawning a remix from 50 Cent and garnering 1.4 million views on YouTube in its first week. The track, penned by The Smeezingtons (which includes Bruno Mars), was followed with an official music video September 1, having clocked over 4.3 million views on YouTube to date.
Free downloads of the new album cuts 'Georgia' and 'ChamPain' will be sent to those joining his mailing list at CeeLoGreen.com. Advance tickets to Cee-Lo's highly anticipated solo show in New York City at Irving Plaza on October 7 are also available through the site.
One-half of Gnarls Barkley, Cee-Lo returns to his soulful roots on 'The Lady Killer,' working with producers Salaam Remi and Jack Splash by fusing classic R&B sounds with hip-hop. The LP marks the first time that Cee-Lo has ventured out on a solo limb since the release of his 2004 sophomore joint 'Cee-Lo Green... Is the Soul Machine.' Unique album packages including a 7-inch vinyl of album single 'Georgia,' a t-shirt and an exclusive screen-printed poster are also available with pre-orders here.
