Is it an official press release? Nope. Does it come in tandem with unreleased music? Definitely not. Did Cee-Lo and Danger Mouse dress up in another magnificent outfit to mark the occasion? Unfortunately, no.
In reality, the news that a Gnarls Barkley reunion may be on the horizon came from TMZ—one of their reporters ambushed Cee-Lo (gowned in some sort of shimmering backpack-sweatshirt-duffel ensemble, possibly sheen leather) at the airport. His “confirmation” (seen in the video above) doesn’t exactly nail down a release date, but we’ll take it.
And seeing as Cee-Lo is handing off his duties as a judge on The Voice to Usher, he’ll have a bit more time to focus on his own music. It would be the duo’s first release since 2008’s The Odd Couple. In the meantime, revisit this beautiful basement recording of “Going On”:
