Gnarls Barkley has christened its sophomore album “The Odd Couple,” and will release it in April via Downtown/Atlantic. The duo of Danger Mouse and Cee-Lo is still finishing the project, having recently recorded with live musicians in Los Angeles.
There’s no track list just yet, but “The Odd Couple” is confirmed to feature one song previewed for Billboard last summer that finds Cee-Lo proclaiming, “Who’s gonna save my soul now?”
Another track, the peppier “Run,” hit the Web last night as part of what appears to be an officially sanctioned viral campaign.
The album is the follow-up to Gnarls’ runaway hit 2006 debut, “St. Elsewhere,” which has sold 1.345 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
As previously reported, Danger Mouse’s production talents will be on display on several upcoming projects, including new albums from the Black Keys, Martina Topley-Bird and the Shortwave Set.
