Is it really, seriously four years since CeeLo Green furnished us with the altogether brilliant ‘Anyway’? Criminally underrated in this country – and pretty much everywhere really – the track was as bright as a button with a chorus catchier than the flu.
To be honest, CeeLo’s chart fortunes haven’t really set charts alight since his ‘The Lady Killer’ album, with its global smash ‘Fuck You’ and the excellent ‘Bright Lights, Bigger City’ (a top ten hit in New Zealand no less).
Undeterred however, CeeLo is back with ‘Music To My Soul’, the first single lifted from his forthcoming album ‘Heart Blanche’ (due in November). It’s got elements of Gnarls Barkley’s 2006 smash ‘Crazy’, which he vocalled, along with some lovely vocal layering and a totally decent pop hook.
