Cee-Lo Talks 'Gnarls Barkley' Collaboration With Danger Mouse

Goodie Mob member

Cee-Lo and DJ Danger Mouse have teamed up and announced they're releasing an

album under the name Gnarls Barkley.

"We are the

perfect combination," Cee-Lo stated. "This album is one of the best

platforms for me to express all of me. I get to expand my range and hit all

categories from Urban, Crossover, Pop and Rock & Roll."

Danger Mouse, who

received massive press for mixing Jay-Z's Black Album with The Beatles'

White Album to produce the Grey Album, recently produced the

Gorillaz album and was named one of GQ's Men of the Year.

His Grey Album

was chosen as Album of the Year by Entertainment Weekly and has been the catalyst

for his current popularity.

"Danger Mouse's

production is so futuristic and my lyrics are used as a vehicle to bring it

home," Cee-Lo continued.

Green is the Soul Machine is in stores now.
