In an interview with HipHopDX, Cee-Lo revealed that Gnarls Barkley has new music ready.
“I’m so glad that I can really say for fact that we are at work on some new music,” he shared. “I’ve been alluding to it over the last few years, you know, keeping the fans abreast of what our aspirations are. We tried to get it together, but scheduling-wise, it was a little difficult to do.”
“And because we’re not an actual group, we have to take the time to get together. And if you have the time, you might not be in the mood or you might need some rest and recuperation from some other prior obligations.”
