CeeLo Green – the voice behind ‘Forget You’ and ‘Crazy’ builds towards the November 13th release of his eagerly anticipated album HEART BLANCHE with the brand new single ‘Music To My Soul’.
Produced by The Futuristics (Bruno Mars), Cook Classics (Jason Derulo) and Tommy Hittz (Pharrell Williams), ‘Music To My Soul’ is a paean to the healing power of music. Referencing his Dungeon Family collective and their 2001 album ‘Even in Darkness’, ‘Music To My Soul’ demonstrates CeeLo’s inimitable ability to blend soul, R&B and hip-hop influences into a towering pop chorus.

‘Music To My Soul’ is the second track to be unveiled from HEART BLANCHE following ‘Robin Williams’ earlier this summer. In addition to those two tracks, other titles that are likely to appear on the album include ‘Working Class Heroes’, ‘Smells Like Fire’, ‘Sign of the Times’ and ‘CeeLo Green Sings The Blues’.
Other collaborating producers and co-writers on the album include Mark Ronson, Charlie Puth, John Hill (Florence + The Machine), Eg White (Adele), Jon Bellion (solo artist and co-writer of Eminem and Rihanna’s ‘The Monster’), Jack Splash (Kendrick Lamarr) and Sean Phelan.
Hailing from Atlanta, CeeLo Green first came to prominence with Goodie Mob and released two solo albums before joining forces with Danger Mouse to form Gnarls Barkley. Their debut track ‘Crazy’ became the first track to top the UK singles charts on download sales alone as it embarked upon a nine week run at #1.
To date, CeeLo has won five Grammy Awards (three solo, two with Gnarls Barkley) and also collected a BRIT Award for Best International Male.
