As Cee Lo Green’s current album ‘The Lady Killer’ continues to maintain a Top 20 position ten months after its initial release with 500,000 sales in the UK alone, the album will receive a further boost with the release of the new single ‘Cry Baby’ on September 12th on Warner Bros. Records. The video for ‘Cry Baby’ has just gone live online and can be viewed here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I34cljQQ7YA . A free remix of the track by TC is also available from www.ceelogreen.com and can be streamed here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_XSsjtx9Z5I
Produced by Rick Nowels (John Legend, Lykke Li), ‘Cry Baby’ is a summer breeze of a song whose melodic lushness and optimism utterly belie the sentiment it expresses. Like the UK #1 and global smash ‘Forget You’ as well as the subsequent hits ‘Bright Lights Bigger City’ and ‘It’s OK’, ‘Cry Baby’ proves that Green’s voice can nail an emotion – be it pain, yearning, anger, sarcasm, love, lust, frustration – like no other.
The eighth biggest selling album of the year to date with an additional 1.2 million single track download sales since the album’s initial release, the success of ‘The Lady Killer’ proves that it’s the album Cee Lo was destined to make. It seals his rep as a writer, producer and performer of unrivalled inventiveness and genius. In the States, the album has sold over 400,000 copies and 4 million individual download tracks.
Having earned Green a Brit and a Grammy Award in the same week, ‘The Lady Killer’ has cemented his status as both the greatest male voice in American music today and earned rave reviews from publications including The Sunday Times (5*), The Independent (5*), Q (4*), News of the World (5*), The Mail on Sunday (5*), Mojo (4*), The Sun (4/5), The Guardian (4*), The Evening Standard (4*) and The Mirror (4*).
Following a low-key headline tour earlier this year, Green returned to the UK in the summer for one of the most celebrated sets at this year’s Glastonbury.
