New Gnarls Barkley: Run!
Gnarls Barkley's St. Elsewhere was a musical accomplishment unlike anything I'd heard before. Dangermouse's sleek and colorful production alongside Cee-lo's tortured words and salty croon was a perfect, if unexpected, match.
The title of the duo's upcoming sophomore release reflects the unlikely pair's winsome chemistry.
Here's a stream of the Odd Couple's first single, Run

It sounds like Cee-Lo is a preacher in the Church of Bad Psychology with his forceful diction and the school kids' choir echoing his words in the background.
Gnarls Barkley's new album, the Odd Couple, is due out in stores in April.
