Following his solo career success, Cee Lo Green talks about his group Goodie Mob getting back together and dropping a new album tentatively called "Age Against The Machine".
His work with Gnarls Barkley is what propelled him into the forefront of popular culture, but long before that, Cee Lo Green was a member of the Dungeon Family affiliate Goodie Mob. Now, firmly placed in the mainstream spotlight as a judge on the reality talent show The Voice, Green says that a new Goodie Mob album is not only in the works, but nearly completed. He also touches on the sound fans can expect and hints that it may have a more universal appeal.
Sitting down with Fuse, the ATL singer says that after a 10 year hiatus the Mob have a new album with a tentative title they plan to release early 2013, and just need to put the finishing touches on the project, “I have a new album with Goodie Mob and we're looking forward to releasing it in first quarter. It's tentatively titled Age Against the Machine. We're still mixing and doing a few more guest appearances and putting the final touches on it, but yes, it's pretty much done."
After a decade long layoff, Green says the group will have a different sound this time around, and hints that it will have a more pop/universal appeal, perhaps trying to follow the success Cee Lo has had as a solo artist. “I think we've grown a great deal in the last 10 years. There's a lot more to consider. There's a broader audience and a greater aspiration to reach as many people as we can, to be as relatable, to be as real, relevant and resourceful as we can.”
