First Impressions: Cee-Lo Green Still Loves Us Anyway
Thursday, November 10, 2011
While he didn't get my memo to combine any tracks from the fantastic Stray Bullets mixtape (which out-shone some of Killer's material) to the beefed up extended edition, Cee-Lo has something better and that is two new tracks, "Scarlet Fever" and "Anyway".
"Anyway", which follows in the jovial soul-pop step we've grown to love from the crooner, is the first newbie to be released from the set, not to mention the sixth (!) single from the Killer project. You might be surprised at the pens that scribbled down this track as not only Green, but the folks from the electro/pop band Wallpaper, Ross Golan, and Weezer's Rivers Cuomo had a hand in making this quite the odd collabo. So if you're wondering why Cee-Lo sounds slicker on this cut than before, then there's you're answer. Some Goodie Mob/pre-Lady Killer enthusiasts might be put off by the surge of pop goodness on this track, but it's so infectious that there is no need to be a snob about anything. Peep the lyrical video for "Anyway" after the cut, and look out of the platinum edition of The Lady Killer to hit stores November 28th---just in time for the holiday rush.
