The Odd Couple
After much anticipation and speculation, Gnarls Barkley has provided information about the new album "THE ODD COUPLE", in stores worldwide on April 8th. "THE ODD COUPLE" explores the forbidden underworld of popular music and human psychology, starting at the intersection of pulsating hooks and pure emotion. "THE ODD COUPLE" takes the playful creativity that distinguished the duo's debut "ST. ELSEWHERE" and expands the energy, the soul and the psychological complexity. It establishes Gnarls as a pivotal act of the 21st Century. Commencing with the hypnotic 'Charity Case', 'The Odd Couple' showcases thirteen songs that advance Gnarls Barkley's vital, unpredictable mission. 'Who's Gonna Save My Soul' mixesmelancholy Motown balladry and parched Delta blues. 'Surprise' juxtaposes its introspective lyrics with sunny backing vocals and insistent spy jazz. 'A Little Better' closes the set with an uplifting expression of gratitude. "It's just bigger, badder, bolder and more arena-friendly," comments Cee-Lo. "I know we're always so modest, but let me toot my own horn. It's really fucking good."
